I'm Garry Anthony Fraser, I'm a BAFTA award winning filmmaker and social entrepreneur that focuses on issues in Scottish society that most people shy away from. I focus on deprived council schemes and the young people who live in them. I can get through to the most hard to reach in our society, but I need your help. Really.
Wideo Media, a social enterprise I set up in 2012, aims to harness creativity in youths who are otherwise marginalised in society and empower them through the art of filmmaking.
It's really important for me to help create stepping stones for socially excluded young people throughout Scotland as no one helped me out of addiction & crime in to higher education. I found my own path, and now I want to leave a ladder for others to climb.
Inner City Arts (ICA) intervention projects are a proven catalyst and real game-changer for the lives of the most vulnerable young people in society. They also benefit community safety, and increase life-chances. Edinburgh University Social Work & Political Science Dept will carry out evaluation of this project, our fourth so far. This will give us a social return of investment to help our case for future sustainability. We will work with 11 young people who are all in need of intervention & support right NOW!!! And we need your help.
