Conduits for Joy

This film focusses on joy through the exploration of creativity; how we use our creativity to make things that bring us joy and allow us to share joy with others.
 
A front-on mid-close up of a white non-binary person called Ali, wearing a bright white tee, khaki dungarees, a multicoloured cycling cap, and a dark helmet. They have a navy bandana tied around their neck, dark rimmed glasses, and a huge grin across their face. The black strap of their bassoon rucksack case is spattered with mud. Only half of them can be seen - the other half off screen. Behind them is a green blur of overlapping hillsides. On top of this backdrop are the words "Conduits for Joy" in beige, with a white block shadow.
