Elephant In The Room Network is a social enterprise created to address issues deeply rooted within local communities. The initial identification of each issue is done via a number of means and then initially addressed as part of a recorded discussion that will not only focus on the issue at hand but those who are working dilligently to relieve of reduce the impact of the issue. We also provide our own solutions via upskilling, funded training, business start up and capacity building. Each of our discussions will be filmed (please see attached) by a group of local youths trying to gain an entrance into the media industry and our aim to give them access to training, mentors and opportunities to break in this sector utilising our network of partners.
Our network grows on a daily basis through our business start up and capacity building projects which have proved succesful in launching and supporting a myriad of organisations ranging from graphic designers, event management, supporting domestic abuse survivors and employability to name but a few.
We are trying to raise money to purchase much needeed equiptment to support our youths to complete production of our discussions, the quality of the film will have an influence on the opportunities they have when referencing their work as part of their own portfolios.
