A brand new quarterly film programme exploring the creativity of our city’s most essential charities, community groups and voluntary organisations. Think you know the city? Here’s a chance to see it through their eyes. This programme will draw on the wealth of creativity from a multitude of perspectives, involving discussion and debate.
The first A City Seen will welcome Mustard Tree, a charity in Manchester supporting the homeless and those living in poverty, and also Chorlton Good Neighbours, a voluntary organisations tackling social isolation amongst the elderly. Both groups have used drama and film projects to tackle social isolation, build confidence, encourage creativity and challenge stereotypes.
For this screening we will have three short films followed by a play performance of LoveChester 70s – What Are You Doing Sunday Baby written and directed by Nakib Narat, including poetry and song all followed by a panel discussion exploring the role of creativity in recovery, in tackling social isolation and in breaking and bending the stereotypes society holds of others. The evening promises to be both serious and silly and will certainly inspire discussion. Everyone is welcome to join in.
