Home is where the art is in this project by Ashton John Films. Home Project will ask the residents of the borough to reflect on the past and look to the future as they answer the question - what does home mean?
A series of short films exploring the lives of residents both old and new will aim to paint a picture of the community that calls our borough home. Home Project will shine a light on individual characters that show the broad spectrum of inhabitants, their contributions and how they have built their own legacies, how they have built a home, and what this has involved.
