After an invitation to be a part of the Schools Festival, from Hope in Tottenham in 2019, FUTURE MARVELRY has been working on motivational projects with many schools and their students. To date, FUTURE MARVELRY has created and delivered workshops, talks and inspirational sessions for schools and Pupil Referral Units in Tottenham, Wood Green and Hampstead. This is part of our plan to MARVELISE young people across London and beyond!

WHAT IS FUTURE MARVELRY?

FUTURE MARVELRY is an innovative motivational platform that uses creativity and imagery to inspire, empower and mobilise young students. With a strong belief in the phrase “I CAN DO ANYTHING”, the main mission of FUTURE MARVELRY is to help young people along the journey towards understanding that this statement is more than just mere words, and can be life changing if they truly believe in it.

The standard programme is delivered in 4 sessions (this can be made shorter or longer to suit requirements) and takes the young Future MARVELISTS on a journey of discovery, awareness and self belief. The final stage is the application of these new skills, alongside the skills and values they already have, to create a tangible project such as an exhibition or ‘Show and Tell’ session at their learning environment.

Founded by visual artist Agenda Brown in 2019, FUTURE MARVELRY utilises his strong visual communication skills to engage with the young people on the programme. With storytelling at the core, FUTURE MARVELRY is intertwined with Agenda’s most passionately created story, THE NEW CHIEFTAINS, which celebrates and explores tenacity and process within extraordinary humans.

THE PROCESS

FUTURE MARVELRY is not intended to be a replacement for traditional education. It is a valuable additional asset that students, as well as teachers and education givers, can benefit from. During the course of sessions we take the students on a journey of self discovery and also join the dots between mood, motivation, self empowerment and self value. The sessions will result in students feeling motivated and energised, which will have a positive impact on the normal curriculum. They can also practice what they learn, long after the FUTURE MARVELRY sessions have finished.

CASE STUDY _ THE OCTAGON

Motivational workshops and talks designed to empower, inspire and connect the young learners with the process of intentional creation. These sessions were delivered over a four week period and saw a marked change in the mindset of the young learners.

OVERVIEW OF THE OCTAGON WORKSHOPS

The FUTUE MARVELRY workshops start with an introduction by Agenda Brown with an accompanying slideshow. He speaks about his approach to creating, life and motivation. The young learners are asked thought provoking questions at the opening of the sessions such as: How does ‘seeing’ effect how we feel? Agenda and the learners discuss the feedback from this question as a group.

The learners are involved with creating a plan to shoot some portraits, either in the classroom or at a location. These are reviewed, edited and processed. There is also discussion about the tasks given, including notes on what feelings arise when coming into contact with things in our every day lives. Then there’s a chance to revisit the question of feelings and their relation to visuals.

The above exercise is repeated but with location /still life images. The learners are encouraged to keep in mind the relationship between feelings and visuals while they are creating their images.

Once we have a series of images from each student, we discuss them as a group and give each learner the space to present and talk about what they have produced and why.

AGENDA BROWN: FOUNDER OF FUTURE MARVELRY

“Agenda Brown, as the creative protagonist of Visual Marvelry™ and generator of visual stories, possesses a rare ability to capture his subjects in a discerning manner, whilst evoking empathy for his subjects. He is a natural observer of commonality and differences in all of us.He has successfully developed a substantial imprint as an original photographic commentator and an authentic observer of active and dynamic cosmopolitan artists, creatives, and social entrepreneurs. Capturing individuals with a cinematic scale, whilst providing creative expression and authenticity to context and environment, he shines a light on the authenticity of the individual characters, and the detail of their personality against a worldly context.

The style of Agenda’s imagery, positions individuals in a larger context whilst preserving their specific personality, and reflecting the intimate scale of their individual context and humanity. People are viewed as a rich matrix of personalities, as dynamic characters set within an everyday urban scenery, but each with sensitive and extraordinary narratives.

His talent resides in both the placement of his subjects, positioned in a shared worldly context whilst providing clear, creative direction in order to translate his images into meaningful narrative, whether as portraiture, story telling, or creative campaigns. Agenda’s focus is always empathetic as well as discerning, warm but objective, inquisitive but never intrusive, and validated by his creative style that empowers the personality of the subject to ultimately shine through and animate the photographic image.”
