We run workshops and projects, where we teach young people in local communities and schools creative and new media skills. The workshops which can be easily implemented into school holidays cover the basics of creating a magazine, videography, photograph and journalism/creative writing.
We ran our first ever ‘Cr8tive Project’ in April 2013 in partnership with Metropolitan Housing on the Moorlands Estate in Brixton, South London.

Endz have been granted by an organization by the name of Positive View to run a photography workshop. Positive View is a charity that supports grass roots organizations and charities that work with young people to help them make a better decisions in life through photography.
The workshop Positive View granted us to run will be called, Take, Aim and Shoot. The name is giving to draw the attention of the young people and also it is a phrase that photographers use when at work or teaching a student photography.

We have recently worked with the Peabody Housing Association in North London to deliver photography and magazine workshops. These workshops trained the young people to create their own media content. http://endz2endz.com/e2e-cr8tive-media/ http://endz2endz.com/e2e-cr8tive-media/Through the workshops young people from the Peabody have had the opportunity to develop themselves and also learn new skills that could lead them into photography, journalism or graphic designing industries.
LOSOCO (Formerly Southwark College), 2013
In 2013 Endz2Endz was invited to Lewisham and Southwark College, to work with students as part of their BTEC National Diploma in Creative Media. We focused on film making and created a project exploring communities titled, “What does community mean to you?”
Enthusiasm filled the classroom as creative ideas bounced of each other; the young people decided they wanted to venture into their local communities to highligh the positive side to life in an urban area, a view that is rarely shown in the media.
