REELmcr is a dynamic, not for profit social enterprise, committed to giving a voice to the most alienated, deprived, under represented and vulnerable communities. We provide intergenerational community groups from across the North West, with the opportunity to gain experience of innovative media production and a chance to tell the personal or collective stories of individuals and communities, using filmmaking as a medium for storytelling, encouraging groups to focus on the issues that affect all members of their community, rather than their differences, cohesion is the goal that underpins all of our projects.

 

MIDDLETON REMEMBERS WW1

Heritage Lottery Poem

TRAFFORD PARK HERITAGE LOTTERY PROJECT

In Partnership with Great Places Housing Association

WHEN THE IRISH CAME TO FALLOWFIELD

A Commemorative poem/film project focuses on the ancestors of the community living on the Langley Estate in Middleton, North Manchester.

Participants on this project been learning about the experiences of their ancestors in the First World War and about the roots of their community.

This cross-generational project has been a fantastic experience for all of us and the Poem has now been written (with the help of the wonderful Tony Walsh AKA Longfella), recorded and is now being produced.

We are now five weeks into interviewing people who worked at and lived in Trafford Park after the war. Collecting memories of the Community, experiences of apprenticeships (as they once were) and the sights and sounds of the Worlds first purpose-built industrial park that once had 40,000 workers.

 

Soon we will be engaging participants for the drama section of this project, then begining workshops and writing sessions and trying to bring what was a most colourful area of Trafford to life.

We are following our anarchic Fallowfield Christmas Panto with a very different project!

Beginning in July we will be interviewing 1st and 2nd generation Irish residents of Fallowfield and recording their memories of Ireland, the journey over to England and what life was like in the Fallowfield Irish Community then.

Once we have our filmed interiews we will weave them into a perfomance at St Kentigerns Irish Social Club, Fallowfield, Manchester.

This project has been made possible with Comic Relief funding from that fantasic Forever Manchester and MCC Cash Grants. Big thank you to them!

Anyone who would like to be interviewed or knows someone who would please contact jacqui@reelmcr.co.uk
