How we made it

The Giddy project has been generously supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Young Roots Programme. This programme enables young people to engage with the UK’s rich heritage. It provides opportunities for them to help shape and deliver heritage projects, develop their own views and opinions about heritage, and gain new skills.

The Giddy Team worked with Longhill High School in Brighton across one academic year, inviting a group of year 10 students studying GCSE History to play an active role in developing the Giddy App.

The team appointed highly experienced artist facilitator Annis Joslin, who worked with archive and youth partners to devise a creative learning programme for the group that helped them to gain the skills and experience they needed in order to fulfil their task.

Annis and the students documented their Giddy journey on the Giddyness Blog. You can see what they got up to here:
