About
CIRCUIT: Whitworth Young Contemporaries is a flagship engagement programme by,with and for young people. As well as being a place to socialise and develop creative skills, it is a platform for young people to showcase their work and ideas. The Whitworth has commissioned artist Anya Gallaccio to make a new sculpture for Whitworth Park.Her commission explores the loss of a single tree that had died. Gallaccio’s sculpture will echo a memory of the original tree; recalling but not replicating what once was there.

The Brief
Our Grand Hall will be the Cinema Room for the event. As part of the programme we are looking for short films made by young people aged 15-25 years to showcase on our big screen on Saturday 25thJune. The films must reflect the festival themes of Folklore, Trees or Memory. Some things to think about…

Can you bring the outdoors indoors?
Can you warp our perspectives of trees, memory or folklore?
