Future Fires 2014

Bobby Chapman

Bobby Chapman has studied music at college and film at university, performed in bands and also volunteers at Z-Arts, facilitating a music workshop called Saturday Allsorts.

Bobby wants to create art in the form of films. He thinks that this is the perfect place to meet like-minded people and get started. His sister Quina Chapman also ran her own Future Fires project and had nothing but positive experiences.

Bobby will be working with young unemployed people (18-24), creating films about subjects they want to discuss.

Bobby is inspired by radical political documentaries from America, which are made by free-thinking, intelligent, politically engaged film makers. It’s something he believes we need in the UK.

Contact’s Future Fires programme, funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, supports young emerging artists to plan and deliver their own community arts outreach projects in Greater Manchester through a tailored programme of training, mentoring and support.
