Welcome to Future Legacy Project!
Future Legacy Project is an exciting creative programme supporting young women to make a difference in the world by creating their own digital social action project.
The overall aim of the programme was to support the participants to learn about social action projects whilst developing their STEAM skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths).
Future Legacy Project brought together girls and non binary people from Bristol to work on big ideas to create positive change. During the first cohort we also brought together girls and non binary people from London through our partnership with Stemettes.
During the programme the participants learn new skills such as web development, photography, video, animation and product design. We also worked with brilliant mentors and had many opportunities to meet inspirational professional women.
What did the programme look like?
" If you are intimidated about applying to this retreat, then don’t be. It’s one of the most amazing experiences of my life, as you get to meet new, kind people and learn life-changing skills. - Ideja.Future Legacy Project was made up of a series of workshops in either Bristol (and London for Cohort 1) and a free residential retreat!
The structure looked like:
The taster sessions were all about coming along and meeting the FLP team and other potential participants from Bristol and finding out more about what to expect from Future Legacy Project.
The induction day’s were an amazing opportunity to meet other young women* from Bristol, inspiring women in the STEM and creative industry and learn new skills. We ran some great activities which encouraged everyone to get to know each other and explore some creative technologies.
What to Expect Evening Events
These evenings were a chance for the group to come along and meet with the FLP team and participants ahead of the retreat! We all had dinner together and covered everything from what to bring with you to what activities to expect on the retreat.
