Clubhouse is an ongoing project exploring the potential of collaborative art-making, set on two streets in Queen’s Park, Bedford. For Spring and Summer 2018 we are delivering a creative programme during school holidays, developed in collaboration with the residents of the two streets and in partnership with The Higgins, Bedford.
The project’s roots began with In Situ Cinema by Julie Myers and Maria Anastassiou. This pop-up filmmaking pilot project took place in summer 2016 on the two streets and was so successful that the artists returned in 2017 to develop the project further.
The result was Clubhouse – a year-long inter-generational filmmaking and creative programme co-created with lead artists Julie Myers and Maria Anastassiou, the residents and our commissions producing team Annie Bacon and Emily Evans.
Clubhouse is supported by a grant from money raised by HealthCourage through The Health Lottery, plus additional support from housing association bpha and Arts Council England.
