Ashford: History in 100 buildings

Some very quick thoughts about the forthcoming #ashford100buildings project…┬áthe idea is to:

  • initiate a discussion in the community about our favourite buildings in the Ashford area
  • make a timeline featuring the 100 ‘best/most significant’ buildings, making sure that every time period is represented (we don’t just want 100 14th century buildings)
  • think about our own present-day or recent experiences of these buildings. For this part of the project we will be making special efforts to engage with residents in care homes.
  • Funder Films CIC will use participatory video techniques to make a film (or possibly a number of short films) about buildings in the area and how we interact with them.

The project will be launched on Thursday July 23rd and I expect it to take a couple of months.
