Eggtooth Project: Film project

Key details

Date: 22nd April 2019

Location: The Eggtooth Project 20 Wellington Square Hastings, England, TN34 1PB

To mark Stephen Lawrence Day, the group created a short, high-impact film entitled ‘To Sea or Not to See’ – featuring local artists Luke AG and Lilly Cooper, who devised and crafted specific spoken word content that offered questions, statements and clear honest facts highlighting the four main focuses of Stephen Lawrence Day. The group hoped the film would educate and inspire young people on Stephen’s life and death in a way they could understand and relate to.

The group ran 2 transition summer schools which had over 300 young people attending. Students watched the film, responded during the Q&A afterwards and completed the Stephen Lawrence Pledge card. From the responses after the film, it was apparent that the majority of the audience (age 11) had never heard of Stephen Lawrence or his important story so Eggtooth Project was pleased they could educate them on this.
