JUST 4 U

After consulting with young people aged 12 – 16 in care in Tower Hamlets, it has been made aware that they want to talk about the following issues at this year’s Just 4 U event:

- What’s going on in my life and decision making.
- Money and Allowances.

These issues will be explored through the creative areas of Photography/Film and Music.

The Complete Works believe that The Apprentice would be a good overall theme to explore the issues at hand.

The Complete Works – 10 Years On!

July 2009 marked the 10 year anniversary of The Complete Works Creative Company Ltd. founded by Phil Evans & Neil Powney in 1999.

In celebration of this great achievement, The Complete Works staged a one night only event and hosted a week long exhibition showcasing the diverse work of the company.

The event was attended by company Patron, Art Malik and the Mayor of London’s Ambassador for Youth, James Cleverly, who each voiced their gratitude for the company’s hard work over the years.

Joining Chief Executive of The Complete Works, Phil Evans, they together lanched the week long exhibition.

‘Made Me Blue’

Throughout June & July 2009, as part of The Complete Works tuition services, the Education & Film department joined forces on a short music video project with two students.

Jody Francis & Indi Hector collaborated to produce and star in their own music video.
The song is called “Made Me Blue” by Jody Francis, which tells the emotional story of a relationship breaking down.
