We believe it's important to have a positive impact on the world through the work we do, by giving people a voice and empowering them to tell their stories.
It all started with an improvised drama 'Kim', which allowed young mums to talk truthfully about their experience of domestic violence.
The film was sold in 26 countries and all of the young women involved were trained as facilitators, in order to help other young women spot early warning signs of domestic violence.
At the time we didn’t realise it but that was the start of the collaboration methodology,
that now underpins every project we do; letting young people tell their own stories.
From that first project, working with 10 young mums in Brixton, the community has now grown to 55,000 young people in over 37 countries.
Latimer has evolved and grown, however we still bring young people in to the creative process in the exact same way as that very first project.
The Real Notting Hill, an educational film on gang violence shot on Latimer Road (giving us our name) and produced and distributed using the co-creative working process, is nominated for a BAFTA and screened on C4.
Latimer Group “The Home of Co-Creation” established
Following the success of The Real Notting Hill, Latimer is established to capitalise on the success of the unique working method.
