Digital media projects

Throughout the year we run a range of exciting digital media projects for young people to participate in. Our projects provide young people with an array of opportunities to get creative, learn new skills and connect with fellow creatives.

The programme is fun, free and open to all skill levels from beginners who'd like to have a go to those interested in working in the digital industries. 

As well as supporting and training young people, our media projects are designed to engage and benefit the wider community. Many of them have been developed in partnership with other not-for-profit organisations. 

If you have an idea for a digital media project, are interested in getting involved with our current project in any way, or want more information, please contact Tommy Edwards, Digital Media Project Manager - thomas.edwards@octaviafoundation.org.uk / 020 8354 5534.
