I SEE TOMORROW
North Edinburgh Theatre group perform monologues from their upcoming short film, which forms part of a unique project to capture the oral histories of those who moved from Edinburgh City Centre to Muirhouse and Pilton from the 1950s.
The North Edinburgh Theatre group, based at North Edinburgh Arts, has begun a unique project to capture the oral histories of those who moved from Edinburgh City Centre to Muirhouse and Pilton from the 1950s to the 1970s. A Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) Stories, Stones and Bones grant has enabled the group to develop their ideas with photographer Elliot Hatherley, musician and storyteller David Francis, led by project director Stephanie Knight.
I See Tomorrow will be realised over the coming months as series of monologues, a film, a photographic exhibition and a programme of radio broadcasts. Researching, recording and sharing the experiences of the families that moved into Muirhouse from the 1950s to the 1970s, this project aims to raise the question of what you need to build a thriving community alongside the bricks and mortar.
