creating hackney as home

My OU colleagues Melissa Butcher and Luke Dickens have been working on a funded research project called ‘Creating Hackney as Home‘ for the past six months, working with five young people from the London borough of Hackney as their co-researchers.  Michael, Matthew, Monet, Shekeila and Tyrell have been making films to explore their sense of Hackney as home, and the first film by Michael, has just gone up on the project’s website here.  Four more films will follow over the next few weeks, with commentary by each filmmaker.  Looks a great project, both in terms of the quality and diversity of the films, but also because the filmmakers are allowed space to reflect on their own different ways of making each film.
