More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Under 25? want to make a film?

         ...and a Beecholme & Casimir resident?

In The Picture are interested in partnering
with a group like the Beecholme & Casimir TRA to deliver a series of video workshops on Hackney estates (to be decided) with young people.

The content of the films can be whatever you, the young people want to work on, but the film-maker was thinking it could be related to gang issues, Olympics, issues affecting young people in Hackney, or more positive stories about Hackney etc. 

You can even decide whether to make a short documentary or a fictional film.

Here's a sample of In the Picture's work:

You can see more examples of their work here

We need to know if you are interested by 20th Feb in order to apply for funding at the end of Feb and if successful start mid-April.
