Snapshot Stories
  • Brighton Fringe

Join writer and performer Naomi Paul and the community of Meon Vale in their collaborative film Snapshot Stories, where arts meets activism! The film was part of Live & Locals LivingRoom project, launched in summer 2020 in response to the pandemic. It celebrates this new communitys sense of place, recent history and the environment in the first lockdown.Filmed and recorded on location by community members, enjoy poetry and music by both Naomi (based on interviews with residents) and by residents themselves. The film features an entertaining ode to the village shop and a musical call to arms with a protest song The Promise of the Woods, as the community prepares to fight for a well-loved area of land under threat of development.In December 2020, following an active residents campaign, the community in Meon Vale learned that development plans for the woodland had been withdrawn.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
