The Redditch Borough Poem: 100 Ways of Looking at Redditch
This project saw us issue an open call to residents and community groups to send us lines for a poem expressing the spirit of Redditch. The result – generous, various, humorous and above all warm-hearted – speaks to the huge amount of affection and pride people in the Borough have for the place they live. During lockdown in 2020, we worked with local filmmaker Mazen Salmou to produce a film-poem based on this project, featuring some of the responses we received.
The film can be viewed here.
