Young residents of Higham Hill and the Banbury Park Estate co-created a song with spoken word artist BREIS and composer Rex Horan in October 2023. We're in production of a Hip Hop video in collaboration with manga illustrator Kaleem Noor to showcase the composition.

Kate brought a fresh new perspective to involving the community and the projects proved really popular with many residents wanting to get involved. Many had never been involved in anything like this and the feedback was very positive as residents were very excited to see their neighbourhood on screen.
Kate has shown how to be sensitive to local needs whilst making sure that the voices of the community are heard. It has helped bring the community together as well as giving opportunities to many, including several young people who have gone on to achieve things they never thought they would.
I have found Kate and her colleagues to be professional in their work and a joy to work with.
