You have a story to share, let’s hear it!


We want to help provide digital media skills to amplify your lived experience of life in an armed forces or veteran family louder than ever before.

Are you between 14-18 years old? Do you have a parent who is currently serving, or has served in the British Armed Forces?

If you can answer yes to the above questions, come along to our Forces Children Scotland Documentary Making Skills Residential, from 10-13 July in Glasgow.

Learn how to make a mini-documentary with Forces Children Scotland and Rebel Loop Studios to share your lived experience as a part of a real multimedia project.

We mentioned a Forces Children Scotland live project – That’s right, we want you to build on what you have learned to make a mini-documentary on a variety of topics from moving to a new area, deployment, and the move to a veteran family.


You have a totally different idea – That’s great! Let’s have a chat and make it happen!


Once you made your mini-documentary, we will share your story on Forces Children Scotland’s website and social media channels to help over 12,500 children and young people from armed forces and veteran families in Scotland.


Better still, we will support you to promote your mini-documentary in your local area – from presenting at school or in the community to developing a local news story and social media content, we will be here to help at every step of the way.


Have fun, make friends, and much more

Once our sessions are done, have some fun, and make new friends through a variety of fun-based activities in the evening, including bowling, crazy golf, and much more.


Where we will be staying during the residential

We will be staying at the Glasgow School of Art Student Halls.
