Carville Primary: Wallsend 72

The project worked from Amber’s film Wallsend 72, which looked at Swan Hunter’s Brass Band and the Rising Sun Legionnaires juvenile jazz band. Amber gathered former members of the Rising Sun Legionnaires and other bands, Year 4/5 video and photography groups were trained in documentary, while the whole school set up a festival day which they could then document.

This project with Carville Primary School in Wallsend was supported by Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Heritage Lottery Fund and Struan Foundation.
