We are delighted to be collaborating with LIVINGMAPS and A-Team Arts on Wednesday the 15th of July for a unique event of film and discussion, reflecting on the changing cultural landscapes and lived experiences that are ‘East London’.
The evening reflects on poetry, song and music as the preservers of place-memory; and focuses on economic change, the architecture of the urban landscape, regeneration and belonging through a mix of creative and documentary footage, archive and spoken word to create a multisensory quality of place-experience.
The ‘Dis/Locations’ programme will include three shorts: ‘Hackney Lullabies’ (2011) by director Kyoko Miyake, Robey (2014) by Craig Bilham & Owen Davey (video-strolls.com) and ‘Robin Hood Gardens: Requiem for a Dream’ (2014) directed by James English. The feature film ‘Under the Cranes’ (2011) will be presented by director Emma-Louise Williams (film-maker, radio-producer) and script-writer Michael Rosen (poet, broadcaster and author). Presenters Emma-Louise Williams, Michael Rosen, Owen Davey (psycho-geographer, curator and film-maker) and Tom Wilkinson (writer and presenter of Robin Hood Gardens’ and History Editor of The Architectural Review) will be joined by other guests for a concluding panel discussion.
