We really looking forward to taking part in this year’s Wolverhampton Literature Festival 2021 to talk about the making of our beautiful new Living Memory Project book based on stories from across the Black Country. 

Come along and join in as we discuss the project in more detail, taking a dive into the book and some of the moving stories and photographs it contains. We will also be joined by two project participants who will share their own experiences of being involved in the project and discuss the wider changes in popular photography and oral history. 

Tickets are free and can be booked here: 

Let’s Talk Film


Our friends at Black Country Touring are hosting the Let’s Talk Film Festival - a series of free events where we can come together, watch films you may not have seen before, and talk to the creators.

The first one is next week (Wednesday 10th Feb at 3PM) and we are delighted that 4 of our commissioned films are being presented. Filmmakers Lauren Hatchard and Olvia James will also be live online to talk about their films and the filmmaking process, their love of story, and much else besides.

Come and join in to discover Black Country history on film: love, religion, belonging... and of course canals!
