    In order to encourage intercultural dialogue, Offscreen Expeditions has produced educational resources out of a creative expedition to Pakistan late last year. A young team of mixed backgrounds from the UK journeyed to Pakistan where their experiences were made into films and can be viewed at: www.offscreenexpedition.com. Their journeys and conclusions are shared in the press release at www.offscreenexpedition.com/press . The resources have been developed to link in with the National Curriculum and include lesson plans and teacher guidance, and are available to download free from theexpedition website. This unique content, seen through the eyes of young people, will now be used to share with other young people worldwide, in order to inspire, educate, and show a more multi-dimensional view ofPakistan, which is often simplified in the media. The team are eager to share their positive experiences as a way to show a more nuanced and balanced picture, and improve relations between the UK and Pakistan. The team are currently touring the UK giving workshops and presentations to schools and youth groups, and the expedition films, blogs and photos are available alongside lesson plans and teacher guidance as a free downloadable resource on the website. High-res images from the journey are available to download (www.offscreenexpedition.zenfolio.com), and all team members are available for interview. Do get in touch if you would like to arrange an interview or need any further information. Thanks!
