What does Hackney Life Mean to You?

Mosaic Films - Hackney Life (Large)

Help us show the real Hackney in film

Mosaic Films is working with Hackney Museum to create a user-generated short documentary from material uploaded to YouTube by members of the Hackney community.

The film will explore the unique nature of life in Hackney today and the momentous change the borough is experiencing in the lead up to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

We want you, the Hackney community, to help us create an authentic portrait of life in Hackney by telling us what you want the film to explore. What are the big talking points, the unseen or under-celebrated parts of life in Hackney today?

Your answers to these questions will shape the brief that we will release in January 2012, inviting video submissions from across the borough.

We are holding two open sessions, one for young people (under 21) on Thursday 1st December 2011, 4pm til 5pm and one open to everyone, on Saturday 3rd December 2011, 11am til 12pm.

Both sessions will be held at Hackney Museum, 1 Reading Lane, E8 1GQ.

This film is part of Hackney Museum’s Mapping The Change project.
