One of the things we're big on here at Co-relate is evaluating our impact. For us, this means understanding what we achieved, what we did well and what we could have done better. It means talking to the people involved in a project and learning lessons for next time.

The Margate Bookie Young Producers pilot project, in partnership with Margate Bookie and funded by Arts Council England, was Co-relate's first funded project since we became a social enteprise in June last year.

Since October I've been back working part-time with Business in the Community (BITC) as part of their Environment team, leading the work on how business can be part of a just transition to a net-zero, resilient future.

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 event as part of a 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!

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Straight 8, they are a super 8 film competition that operates in connection to the Cannes film festival. 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.
