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.


Mayday footage – more needed please!

Thanks so much to everyone who has already sent in some footage for the participatory film about lockdown which is being coordinated by Funder Films CIC. We’ve already got some great clips, some of which you can see below.

However.. we’re still looking for more! (Never satisfied…:-) ) So please do send in your short video lockdown clips – even if they weren’t actually filmed on Mayday. Please send to or look for Funder Films CIC or Jasper Bouverie on Facebook.
