Happy to announce that CounterCulture has been selected by Newham Heritage Month to feature in their Festival in May!
CounterCulture is a multi-media exploration into the heritage of Newham, through the lens of it’s diverse corner shops. Unique microcosms of the communities they ‘serve’; responsive, convenient and in recent times, key to survival, corner shops provide a valuable social hub and neighbourhood focus – a village in a city.
We’ll be working collaboratively with shop owners, their communities and will train a dedicated team of ‘heritage producers’ to work with us to make 5 short films, to be premiered during the festival.
We are in consultation with Newham Events to obtain permission for an outdoor, site-specific screening of CounterCulture…coming to a corner shop near you!
