Giving people the opportunity to imagine, fund & create projects that bring their local area to life
I aim to record photographically the demolition of the deco Abbey Cinema recording the interiors and it's last day on Church St, Picton Liverpool. In its place, Lidl will build a brand new supermarket to service the local population. the project will have a huge influence on the lives of the people who live in the area and I'd like to make this more inclusive and accessible to the community so they feel more involved and can understand what goes into such an enterprise. The progress will be logged on a master website and Instagram pages weekly with still images but small films too, as the development progresses. I want it to be about the people who make it and the people who will use it. Mainly in the form of portraits with testimonials. I'll build a human map of faces and voices of what people think about losing such a beloved old landmark and having it replaced with a much needed new purpose build supermarket. A people's palace of celluloi replaced by a people cathedral of food.
