Our Place

Junction Arts, in association with 6 arts organisations from across 4 counties, delivered Our Place to showcase the people and places of the East Midlands, through the arts.

We worked with project partners City Arts (Nottingham), High Peak Community Arts (High Peak), People Express (Swadlincote), Soft Touch Arts (Leicester), Surtal Arts (Derby) and The Hub (Sleaford).

The project was inspired by ‘Our World’, the first live, global TV broadcast in June 1967 that connected five continents by satellite. The broadcast invited international artists to perform and represent their respective countries and Our World is most famous for the segment from the UK, which ended with the Beatles performing ‘All You Need is Love’ for the first time.

The new work created through each residency was brought together into a feature length film by Director Chris Bevan, co-curated by Junction Arts and our partners and artists to showcase a diversity of artforms, cultures and communities that make up our diverse East Midlands.

Our Place is a partnership project led by Junction Arts and only made possible thanks to public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
