Reimagine 2021 – Belonging Together

Part of #ThisIsDerby Reimagine, we created three brand new music videos in collaboration with Sinfonia Viva, QUAD, Hubbub Theatre Company and Sam Jordan Films, together with five SEND schools from across Derby.

The project involved young people from:
  • Ivy House School
  • St Andrew’s Academy
  • St Clare’s School
  • St Giles School
  • St Martins School and Horizons 6th Form in Derby

Inspired by the theme of friendship, these inspirational, catchy and vibrant films will nurture your soul and stir your senses with sensational sing-along songs!

Everything you see and hear was created by young people from Derby SEND schools. The films feature brand new music, animation, felt environments, movement, dance and behind the scenes footage to create a joyful celebration of togetherness, kindness and creativity. 

The young people worked creatively with artists from Hubbub Theatre Company, QUAD and Sinfonia Viva.
