HOLDING PLACES

18 Apr 2024 7-11pm

TACO!
London SE2 9FA

Overview

TACO! presents a new film Our Future, Our Past: whisper it to me (2024) - by  Charlotte Ginsborg (commissioned by Cement Fields), alongside  I Carry it With me Everywhere (2024) by Turab Shah and Arwa Aburawa, and selected archival material that addresses memory, belonging, home and transience in relationship to contemporary built environments and large-scale regeneration. The screening will be followed by a discussion between the filmmakers and the architect Maxwell Matunda focusing on the use, ownership and experience of public space and the creative and political potential of participatory filmmaking practices. Holding Places is the first in an ongoing series of events, projects, talks, screenings, broadcasts and publications that form part of Estates - a research programme with artists, communities and groups that considers TACO!’s wider context of urban regeneration, the surrounding estates of Thamesmead and Abbeywood, and how we might collectively re-imagine community and civic space. Holding Places is presented in association with Cement Fields.
