The premise was simple: Margate Bookie and Co-Relate were looking for young people aged 18 to 30, from whatever background, with however much experience, to come on as ‘Young Producers’. Goal: help curate an online, one-event festival. Duration: 3 months. Most of us signed up without a second thought, seeing this as an opportunity to easily gain some hands-on experience with a well-known local charity. 

 

What we pitched for as a team, and received funding and support with, was a much bigger project and a challenge none of us suspected. One event became three, three months became a year.

Rebekah Robertson is a content and events producer here at Co-relate but mostly she’s a multi-disciplinary artist currently based at Fire Eyeland studios, Margate. Her creative practice spans music and songwriting, screenwriting and visual art, and her work is driven by a passion for collaborative relationships. Her catalogue of live events, film projects and studio recordings are rooted in collective creative processes that reflect life, embody transformation and envision a better world. She has over a decade's experience as a copywriter with a lyricist’s ear for words, and a focus on projects oriented around social transformation.

Here’s what Rebekah told us in response to our questions!

We got to know who they are through one of our team members applying for other work and everyone at Straight 8 seemed super interesting, so we couldn’t wait to interview them for this blog segment. I spoke to Ed who runs the competition and here’s what he had to say.

After more than four years working with organisations in Margate and London to listen to, involve and empower communities, Co-relate has officially become a Community Interest Company (CIC) regulated by the CIC Regulator.

Now with the full name Co-relate Communication CIC, we will continue to work for the benefit of the creative and cultural community here in Thanet, stepping up our efforts to work in partnership to increase creative opportunities for young people and community groups.
