People's Landscapes: Pop-up cinema, exhibition & free cafe
A celebration of community in Easington with Amber Film & Photography Collective and CAFE Together. You're invited to join in, bring stories and photographs to share.
- Booking not needed
- Free event
Featuring photographs by Keith Pattison and Izabela Jedrzejczyk and films from Amber Archive.
Inspired by Free Cafes run by women from Save Easington Area Mines over the '84-'85 miners' strike, CAFE Together will provide free soup and cake (except Thursday, when their weekly £1 lunch will be served).
Amber are making a new film about the history and future of the area. They are keen to collect personal stories, plus photographs to scan and add to an evolving exhibition over the week.
- Children of all ages are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult.
- Assistance dogs are welcome.
- Meeting point
- You'll find us at Easington Colliery Methodist Church, Seaside Lane, Easington SR8 3PE
- There is ramped access into the building.
- At 8pm on Friday, there will be a screening of two films. 'Of Whole Heart Cometh Hope' is Amber's new film documenting the making of the County Durham Women's banner that was paraded at last year's Durham Miner's Gala. In addition, a rarely seen 1984 Tyne Tees film from Northern Film and TV Archive tells the story of the Easington Women's Support Group during the miners' strike. The evening will be attended by speakers from the Women's Banner Group and the original Support Group. This week-long event is part of the People’s Landscapes national programme, inviting people to look beyond the beauty of National Trust places and discover the hidden histories within. On the Durham Coast, artists and communities are exploring the area’s industrial and social heritage, and how people’s actions and events have helped shape the landscape.
