We’re excited to announce that in late March, the Everyday on Canalside project will be presenting a guided film trail around the Canalside Estate as part of its Moving Worlds film programme, showcasing a lot of the work that we’ve been working on with residents so far.

The film trail will use the open spaces and buildings around Canalside to project moving images and films about and by residents produced as part of Humans of Canalside since mid-2014. Along the way, some residents will also be sharing stories about Canalside people, memories, and regeneration. Then we’re having a party at the Whitmore Community Centre to celebrate. It will be a great opportunity to explore the area with your neighbours and perhaps see your portrait projected onto your building!

We’re currently working with the Canalside Residents’ Association to plan the community event on March 28. Stay tuned for more details by checking back here, subscribing to our newsletter, or contacting us.

Have any old pictures or films of Canalside? For one of the films, we’re looking for photographs, films or videoclips (along with their stories) about the area from the past and present. From what the buildings used to look like, to special people and neighbours, to memorable moments from the past and present—all of these will contribute to an exciting and growing collection of stories on the Humans of Canalside blog and the film trail event. If you have something to add to the collection, please get in touch with Marcia (info@humansofcanalside.org / 07854638302).

Want to help with the event? If you’d like to contribute to the planning and organization of the event, we’d love to hear from you! Please get in touch with Justin (justin@shoreditchtrust.org.uk / 020 7033 8500).

This event has been supported through the Community First Neighbourhood Matched Fund programme administered by CDF for the Office for Civil Society.
