Yorkshire Coast Residents Asked To Take Part In Remote Project

Yorkshire Coast Residents Asked To Take Part In Remote Project

A Scarborough-based theatre company's launching a 'remote participation project'.

It is for people up and down the Yorkshire Coast to get involved with in the coming months.

Lee Threadgold, who is from Animated Objects, said:

"It's called 'Lighting Up The Coast' and it's going to be the first chapter in a much larger project called 'The Odyssey', which is going to be going on for about three years, right from Spurn Point to Staithes.

What we're asking people is if they can just film us a short video on their mobile and what we'll do is collect all these videos together and we'll put them into a digital installation that'll tour up and down the coast.

We're asking people two questions, if they can film them for us please, the first one is 'what do you love about the place where you live?' everybody has a different opinion on that and everybody loves different things about where they live on the coast.

The second question is 'what do you really value in your life? What are the most important things in your everyday life?'"

It is hoped that when the project is completed, it will do a tour of the Yorkshire Coast later this year, or in early 2021, depending on the Government's lockdown rules.

Anyone who wishes to submit their video can do so by messaging them on their Facebook page or Instagram
