- 12th December/ Colston Hall
In Somebody Else’s Shoes, secondary school project
To recall the original link between Bristol and Hannover, when shoes were taken to the German city for the children and Hannover responded with music, the students will themselves create pairs of shoes and compose a piece of music. Alongside this they will exchange documentary film-making skills and produce promotional videos for primary schools. Hannover and Bristol students will partner up to showcase their designs at a fashion show to musical accompaniment in Hannover in November and later at Colston Hall on 12th December.
