Imagine Hillfields – Film Night @ #FV

From our Fargo Village Emporium

In connection with their current exhibition exploring the regeneration in Hillfields, our Fargo Village emporium is hosting a screening of three short factual films detailing life in the area.

Imagine Hillfields Film Flyer

Film 1 – ‘A City Reborn’ – 1945

Scripted by poet Dylan Thomas, this affecting docu-drama recalls the incendiary bombing of Coventry on 14 November 1940. The film focusses on reconstruction and morale: we see the city’s rebirth through the eyes of a young local couple planning for their future, and an engineer interested in the new housing drive.

Film 2 – ‘Learning for Leisure’ – 1973September-1973

This BBC Education documentary follows the community development work of Paul Skelton, Mel Cairns and Richard ‘Slim’ Hallett as they help the HRS Residents Association (Hartlepool, Redcar and Stockton Roads) have their area of Hillfields declared a General Improvement Area rather than a clearance area.

Film 3 – ‘A Coventry Kid Am I’ – 1981

Filmed by Peter Gordon in 1979 this BBC Everyman film focuses on Coventry forty years after the war and their much vaunted rise from the ashes of the Blitz.

The screenings begin at 4pm on Friday 21st August, see you there!

A note from our lovely landlord @ #DS

From our Dudley Street Emporium

PHOTOGRAPHY by Mathew Growcoot/News Dog Media - 0121 246 1932 - 07961 519 739 - pictures@newsdogmedia.co.uk

PHOTOGRAPHY by Mathew Growcoot/News Dog Media – 

Our lovely landlord Karen and her team over at Dudley St is currently trying to raise funds to renovate an education studio in the Birmingham Open Media Gallery. Here’s a note from her to explain a little more about it and we’d love it if you could help them reach their goal!

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

BOM has just 5 days left to raise £1,500 to renovate a new education studio that will give us additional space to run skills-share events with creative technology, as well as a much needed production space for the BOM Fellows, artists, scientists and technologists to work together. And we need you to help us raise vital funds to enhance and improve this space! You can make a real difference to what we we can achieve by donating a pound (or five!) Otherwise, please help us spread the word through your networks. We would be enormously grateful for whatever support you can provide.

This is BOM’s very first crowd funder and is such an important development for us. The new space will host a new young people’s network, creative coding workshops and STEAM education programmes with schools (including those falling in the worst 5% for multiple deprivation), FE and HE. It will also be used as new fabrication space for artists, scientists and technologists developing truly innovative collaborative projects. If you need any further convincing, BOM Fellow Amy Martin has been tweeting #100Reasons to back our campaign highlighting some of the many brilliant things we plan to do in the space. I really value your help in spreading the word and helping us make this happen!

With Deepest Thanks,

Karen Newman

Director BOM (Birmingham Open Media)
