Estuary Stories

Join us for Natasha Davis' Estuary Stories, an online performance film recorded in the secret corners of Chatham and the dockyard, to encounter moments of laughter, loss, kindness and new beginnings, shared by your neighbours – old and new.

Out of photographs, poetic lines and memories from your neighbours’ lives, stories emerge honouring moments of transformation through past and current challenges.

In an open conversation after the film you will be able to ask questions to the contributors and share, if you wish, a similar experience and thoughts of your own during the online gathering.

Book on here

The film screening will be on Zoom. A link will be email to you after you book your place.

About the artists
Natasha Davis is a performance and visual artist with over forty solo and collaborative projects in a range of media including live performance, installation, film and publication. Her interdisciplinary, personal and politically engaged work focuses on crossing borders, body and memory. She collaborates with extraordinary artists, scientists, institutions and participants from all walks of life, creating work that is embedded in the belief that art can inspire change. She mixes autobiography, fantasy, research and technology to communicate a poetic truth that crossing borders is a balancing act between loss and liberation, as well as a potent space for opening a conversation about who we are, with a view to shaking up existing stories and initiating new ones.

Ideas Test is part of Arts Council England’s Creative People And Places initiative. Created in 2012, they work together with communities in Medway & Swale to live more creative lives.
