We Are All Different; We Are All The Same

This audio documentary was commissioned by the Community Relations and Equality Board for Norfolk as part of an insight study into the day-to-day experiences and opinions of community tensions and ‘hate’ in Great Yarmouth.

This is a unique opportunity to listen to peoples’ lived experiences of being identified as different because of who they are. It captures perceptions and opinions on who or what they think is responsible for tensions in Great Yarmouth.  The documentary also captures the importance of connections between individuals and groups and how these can help break down barriers and diffuse tensions.

Produced for the Community Relations and Equality Board for Norfolk.

The Packing Shed

IMG_1802

The story of a unique landmark off the eastern coast of England – a packing shed built in the 1890s for the cleaning, sorting, and packing of oysters.

Oysters were central to the local economy of Mersea Island and were exported to hotels and restaurants in London and beyond.

As time passed, The Packing Shed fell into disrepair.

This documentary explores how a community restored the shed to its former glory and the celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the establishment of the trust that sought to revive and protect it.
