The thoughts of Preston’s people are to be captured in a ‘participatory documentary’ this weekend, as the ‘Going Up Town’ booth makes its way around the city.Advertisement
The project aims to capture the thoughts of the people of Preston on it becoming a city, rather than a town.
The booth has been at The Covered Market, Harris Library and on Sunday 6th December between 12 NOON – 2 PM it’ll be at Boots on Fishergate.
Pop in, tell your Preston tales in the booth and enjoy some light refreshments.
Ruth Heritage from They Eat Culture who is organising the project wants it to tell the story of the city:
What do you do up town? What do you see, what do you enjoy? How do you work, where do you play? Where do you go? What was it like when you were younger? What will it be like in 20 years time?
We want to know your Preston stories about the city centre and how or if it’s changed from being ‘up town’ to a city, and how you think it might change in the future. If you have something to say then we want to hear from you. We’ll be holding a series of city centre sessions in early December, where you’ll be able to see a short film of Preston, be served with delightful refreshments, and tell us your tales in our story booth.
The results of the documentary will be seen online and at Lancashire libraries.
