This Saturday 8th March we’re delighted to invite you to a premiere film screening and ‘meet the artist’ event at Priory House in Dunstable.

We’d love to see you at the premiere screening at 1pm. If you can’t make it then, there will be repeat screenings every 15 minutes between 2.15 and 4pm.

Film maker Tim Brunsden has made a beautiful short film to accompany We Are Now, the wind charming event created by the people of Dunstable and artist Laurence Payot last year.

Last year we invited the people of Dunstable  to dance with the wind and create a new folklore. In September, over a thousand people gathered on the downs in gale force winds, having spent all summer ‘charming the wind’ in the town below.

Tim followed Laurence throughout this year long project, as she worked with the people of Dunstable, defining what is important and meaningful for us in Dunstable today, and inventing a folklore for the future.

On 8th March join us at the Priory House Heritage Centre in Dunstable for the first look at this spectacular and moving film. Meet the artist, celebrate this remarkable achievement and hear plans for this year’s wind charming event, the second in what we hope will become a new annual tradition.

An exhibition of photographs will accompany the screening, and remain at Priory House for two weeks.

Short film screening & meet the artist: 1pm, Saturday 8th March 2014
Priory House Heritage Centre, 33 High Street South, Dunstable, LU6 3RZ
Refreshments will be provided
Repeat screenings 2.15pm-4pm

We Are Now was commissioned and produced by Bedford Creative Arts working with artist Laurence Payot and a team of creative people from in and out of the town.
Special thanks to the National Trust at Dunstable Downs and Dunstable Town Council.
Supported using public funding by Arts Council England and by the Chilterns Conservation Board.
