With the support of Chelsea Riverside Councillors through City Living, Local Life, Age UK Kensington and Chelsea and local media charity digital:works teamed up to produce One Potato, a film documenting the changing nature of play in Chelsea with local children and older people’s groups.
One Potato builds upon interviews with children conducted by Iona Opie in Chelsea in the 1970s and is based around the World’s End Estate, which celebrated its 40th anniversary this year.
As well as taking part in the film by comparing their experiences of play with local older people, the children also learnt skills in film production and recording and played a large role in putting the film together.
The film is launching on Monday 16 May 2016 at Chelsea Theatre (World’s End Place, SW10 0DR) from 10:30am-12:30pm.
