A BIG program of activities its on offer for local children in the upcoming spring school holidays thanks to the Derwent Valley Youth Future Action Team (D’FAT), the Salvation Army, Derwent Valley PCYC and Freedom Health and Wellness Centre.

One of these activities will be a three-day video-making workshop for young people aged 6-12 years. This workshop will be held on September 30 and October 7 and 9. “The aim of the workshop is to produce a five-minute newsreel made up of three or four stories that have a child’s perspective on living in regional Tasmania,” D’FAT chairman Nic Kaiser said. "Participants will gain experience in story development, production scheduling, sound recording, camera work and editing.”

Registration to attend the video-making workshop is essential and can be made through https://dfat_video_making_workshop_oct19.eventbrite.com.au. “The video-making workshop is funded through a small grant received from Communities for Children South-East Tasmania, the Salvation Army," D’FAT facilitator Matt Hill said.

D’FAT will also stage an all-age outdoor movie night at Arthur Square in New Norfolk on October 12 from 7pm. This free event is supported by the Derwent Valley Council, and will include a barbecue provided by D’FAT and the showing of LEGO Movie 2 by Tassie Open Air Cinemas.
