Help us bring Joy to the Moment
We are very excited to announce Joy to the Moment, a new project working to develop films to entertain residents isolating in care homes or for people who are shielding in their own homes. This project will take the form of a series of mini performances provided to us by anyone who would like to get involved and edited together into an entertaining film to be enjoyed by people who can’t get outside.
Joy to the Moment is inspired by an original idea from Gracie Irvine, a young pupil at The Edinburgh Steiner School, who was worried about people who are isolating or are in care settings and wanted to find a way to entertain them.
How do you join in?
Simply record yourself doing something creative outdoors whether it be music, dancing, singing, poetry, comedy, art or anything else you think people will enjoy. These films are specifically to share with people who have to stay indoors so we would like all of your videos to be filmed outdoors.
We would love to see videos from individuals, couples, families and flatmates of all ages and abilities so if you would like to showcase your talent and you are under 18 please make sure you have consent from a parent or guardian. If your video is selected for the film you will be provided with a consent form to fill in before we use your video.
Recordings can be up to 15 minutes and selected films will be used in a series of films produced throughout the year. Any digital recording will be suitable including videos recorded on phones.
Make sure you use #joytothemoment and tag @captheatres or send your masterpiece to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications to be included should be sent to us by Wednesday 1 July at 12 noon.
Joy to the Moment is a part of our Raise the Curtain project which is enabling us to engage with people digitally during lockdown. Find more about our new digital engagement programme.
