A pilot project exploring this idea ran in three schools from September 2008 – July 2009, with a view to longer term development both in Manchester and, potentially, in other cities in the UK. The project was funded by Manchester City Council and managed by the RSA.

The project was called ‘What makes Manchester great’. During a three week period, students visited key areas of significance within Manchester. They collected a range of audio and visual material, including still digital photos and digital video, during these visits. At the end of the project they were asked to work together to produce a film that presented their discoveries on their journeys with the people and places in Manchester. Approximately ninety students were involved in the three week project. A composite film of the best of the students' works will be displayed on the large screen in Exchange Square during the next few months.
