Are you aged 16-25 and interested in filmmaking, fashion or campaigning?

Chocolate Films and London Metropolitan Archives are looking for young people to take part in:


Work with other young people to make documentaries giving a contemporary view on two aspects of London’s history that have had a presence on the streets of the capital – fashion and campaigning.

By taking part in a series of workshops run by professional filmmakers and archivists you will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn how to write, direct, shoot and edit a short documentary using professional camera and editing equipment.
  • Gain skills in archive research, film publicity and event management
  • Have your films screened at the LMA’s Youth Maze event at London Guildhall, submitted to film festivals around the UK and uploaded online to the Chocolate Films Youtube channel.
  • Work towards an Arts Award.


Street Heritage workshops will take place on:

Thursday evenings from 4pm – 7pm commencing Thursday 1 April and

full days 10am – 5pm during the spring half-term Mon 31st May – Friday 4th June.
