Well, our Access to Heritage project is now finished (apart from the exhibition in Cafe Sobar which runs until the end of December 2018!).
We’re really pleased to mark the end of the project by sharing this short film which was made by our friends at Crocodile House. It may be short but it’s perfectly formed and gives a great flavour of what the project was about and what it meant to the people that took part.
Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the project introduced people engaged in Double Impact’s services to local heritage from the viewpoint of ‘The Outsider’. The programme took the form of several visits to local sites of interests and heritage venues, and led on to a series of creative workshops where participants could respond to their experiences in a variety of ways. The sessions culminated with a live performance event in Cafe Sobar, attended by friends and family, where participants shared what they had create
d. This performance was recorded and turned into a podcast which was later broadcast on community radio station, NGDigital.
It is hoped that this pilot will inform a larger programme of similar activity in the future.
Some of the work is on display at Cafe Sobar until the end of the year.
