Push The Boat Out

In spring 2021, as part of National Careers Week, The D-Day Story commissioned artist and filmmaker Jan Frith to work with Portsmouth Young Adult Carers.

Together they captured the varied jobs involved in achieving the restoration and installation of LCT 7074 next to The D-Day Story. In preparation they designed questions, practiced interviewing and took part in a virtual tour of the ship.

All activity and filming was carried out virtually due to the lockdown restrictions. Workshops and interviews provided an enjoyable way for people to keep connected.

The films are co-created to inspire the future career aspirations of young people.
