Quakers and Business is a volunteer-led charity which seeks to promote Quaker principles of truth and integrity, justice, equality, community simplicity, peace in business and the workplace.
Our Young Leaders work package
A group of Ethos Young Leaders worked with the Q&B Clerk, Roland Carn, to develop a scenario and cost the production of a short film. The young people were all on Universal Credit and were supported by the government’s Kickstart scheme.
The young people met with Roland Carn online and explored ideas for a film scenario that could highlight Quaker business principles. Using this as inspiration, young leader Sam Carty wrote his own interpretation of what can go wrong in a workplace when human values of respect and integrity are violated.
Once the film scenario and costs for professional actors and production were approved, the production process started – this included script writing, advertising for and auditioning actors, researching, procuring and mastering appropriate technology platforms for filming online, production design, editing and sound. It took place entirely remotely with the young people based around Scotland and Hertfordshire.
