I love the This Girl Can campaign. It is a celebration of active women who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets. Developed by Sport England, to help women overcome the fear of judgement that is stopping too many women and girls from joining in.
Even by their standards though the new advert is awesome:
The ad uses extracts from Maya Angelou’s Phenomenal Women poem alongside real women taking part in sport.
“Jesus: Truth or Fairytale?” a Christmas video resource aimed at 16-19 year olds. For many young people Christmas is a fairytale, a nice story we repeat each year. This video asks the question, what if God really came to town?
The video features Meg Cannon reciting a spoken word piece that brings back the grit, humanity and truth into the nativity story, and then questions what that might change. If Jesus’ birth was a real event, what does that mean for me and what does that mean for you?
Last year Glen Scrivener produced a brilliant one-shot video. It appeals to the human nature to want to label ourselves and one another as it helps us to consider which of the ‘four kinds’ we are, after all everyone loves working out their ‘type’. There’s an interactive website and book, which could be a great conversation starter.
Roger Carswell warmly narrates this graphic and asks the question, “are you ready for what God wants to give you this Christmas?” You pick up an accompanying book and free downloads of posters, invites and the high definition version of this video here.
