Students across the West Midlands are starring in a new film produced by the local regional office to promote the work of the WEA. The film was funded by the West Midlands Region to illustrate the diversity and character of WEA courses and educational programmes.
The film was produced by Emmy-award winning company Junction 15, who specialise in community arts and educational films.
A student of WEA tutor Rachel Trpeski's health and exercise and classes talks on camera about his experience - and dons a wig for a fitness class with a difference. You can hear and see more of Rachel and students in the film.
As well as footage of classes across the region and comments from class students about their WEA experiences, there are interviews with tutors and partners. Although the film focuses on the work of the WEA in the West Midlands, it is also a good reflection of the WEA elsewhere in the country.
You can see the film on You Tube or the West Midlands website.
