Our first paid job! Back in August we volunteered to support the East Midlands All in One Project for the 2010 European year for combating poverty and social exclusion. Project managers, CEFET agreed with us that it was a great idea to raise the project profile through social media, so we created a blog, Twitter and Facebook accounts to engage a virtual audience with events at The Workhouse on the 18th October.
From weeks of tweeting, blogging and generally getting as many people talking about #povcon as possible, we were then commissioned to capture as much content from the Poverty Convention as possible. Alongside Liam, from Concrete Solutions, we overcame the dank October day and walls that no amount of technology could not pass to create a whole host of film shorts, interviews and photos.
