Past Lives Project is an arts and heritage project touring 8 regions in the midlands between 2014 – 2016. This project is funded by Arts Council England & Heritage Lottery Fund. In each region we are calling out for local amateur cine film, digitising this to make new films that share social history and speak of everyday past lives.
