Archive for Change – back in the West End

Posted June 13th, 2012

After a very successful first phase of the project, Archive for Change is back in the West End and will be running a whole new programme of projects and events over the course of the next year.

Join us at our first event:

Archive for Change Launch 2012
ST. JAMES CHURCH, BENWELL
Monday 18th June 10-12.30pm
Tuesday 19th JuneĀ 12-4pm

The Launch events will feature an exhibition with some of the films in the Archive, an introduction to the project’s website and the opportunity to speak to the organisers about the future activities of the project, andĀ  how to get involved.

These include:
-Hosting or attending a pop-up event which introduces the project and showcases the collection
-Taking part in training workshops in documentary filmmaking
-Adding a copy of your own film to the collection
-Getting involved in the future of Archive for Change

Since 2009, the project has gathered some fascinating short films, archive footage and interviews with critical viewpoints about the effects of regeneration in the West End of Newcastle. Archive for Change believes these stories are important to document and safeguard for the future.

In this stage of the project we are aiming to present and promote the Archive as much as possible, develop new uses for the collection, and work towards making it a locally-rooted, accessible resource for all in the West End and beyond.
