Rewinding the Welfare State: A Social History of the North East on Film

23 November, 2.15 - 3.45, £5.00

Rewinding the Welfare State: A Social History of the North East on Film

 

Join us on an interactive cinematic journey through the social development of the North East region from WW2 to today. Dr Ben Lamb from Teesside University will be here to introduce each film and together we’ll talk about what makes the social character of our area so distinctive. You’ll be invited to share your memories about how accessing healthcare, housing, education and other human rights have changed over the years and reflect on what we can learn from the past to improve our future.

This screening is brought to you by the North East Film Archive, as part of their North East on Film project connecting the people and communities of the region with their film heritage, in partnership with Teesside University. Supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Teesside University.
