Bob a Job
Back in 1949, the Scout Association ran a campaign called ‘Bob A Job’ and raised the equivalent of £924,000… in one day. The money was used to send scout leaders to help refugees in northern Europe. This film shows the scouts teaming up with Empathy Lab to use pictures, documents and objects as a ‘show and tell’ for primary school children. In return, the kids produced creative and illustrative responses to that presentation.
This was the first time we had worked together, so we held meetings to understand the purpose of the film and who we needed to interview. The film achieved its objective in showing how the children thought about refugees in an empathetic way, but also revealed how the importance of the Scout Association goes way beyond earning activity badges.
