New Film – Future Stirchley

07/03/2021

Our new film 'Future Stirchley' that was commissioned by Historic England is now live. In this short film, shop and business owners, residents and users are asked their thoughts on what Stirchley and the high street means to them and how they see its future. What it reflects is the deep connection this community feels to Stirchley, and to each other.

The film has been created by Geoff Broadway, Kate Jackson, Sirina Monique and spoken word artist Auden Allen.

'Future Stirchley' was commissioned as part of the series 'Future of the High Street', in which ten films created by contemporary filmmakers, in collaboration with young creatives, explore what the future of the high street could be. Watch the full series on our website: https://historicengland.org.uk/get-in... 'Future of the High Street' is part of the High Streets Heritage Action Zone Cultural Programme, led by Historic England in partnership with the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Arts Council England as part of the High Streets Heritage Action Zones initiative funded by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
