We delivered ZGLL in 5 libraries and a school with a total of 7 workshops/talks. The project brought a brand new educational experience to 100 children (aged 5-15) and their families/school, for many this was their first time using VR. We created an engaging gaming/immersive experience in a format where children explored, had fun increasing their digital literacy, learnt about the moon, and then discussed literature with each other and wrote their own book reviews. zerogravitylunarlibrary.co.uk

The chance to express their feelings and feel connected to others is important for all children but for children in care, it is something that can often prove difficult as they navigate the care system and work through complicated life issues. This is why we were keen to work with Culture Leicestershire and their young people to create a Virtual Gallery of artwork and books that give voice to the participants’ aspirations and hopes for the future.
We brought some of our archive films to the Castleford Tigers Supporters Club Heritage Weekend at Queens Mill Castleford. 400 people attended the event and the films gave many an opportunity to reminisce ‘We really enjoyed watching the film and reliving such great moments’ ‘it was great to see my grandad in the film who is no longer with us’.
