Digital Voice – Chopwell Past and Present Resource

Digital Voice, supported by the Well Newcastle Gateshead Arts Fund, worked with a group of Chopwell residents to create a digital resource to celebrate the history of the village based on old photographs they collected.

In the video below, they talk about the project and the stories behind each photo. All of the materials and photos collected for the project can be found in the Chopwell Regeneration Group website, http://www.chopwell.org.

Digital Voice Chopwell Past and Present Event

We were delighted to attend Digital Voice’s Chopwell Past and Present Event at Chopwell Community Centre yesterday, where they exhibited part of the thousands of photographs collected and curated by Chopwell residents as part of the Digital Art for Chopwell project, supported by the Well Newcastle Gateshead Arts Fund.

The event also featured a film of the work undertaken, with great stories about the photographs and history of the town. Well done to all who took part!

The collection of photographs and the film will very shortly be available on the Digital Voice YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC07YzYIy9bbT9V4tuw-mlcg?view_as=subscriber, and the Chopwell Regeneration Group website, http://www.chopwell.org/.

Digital Voice – Chopwell Past and Present

Digital Voice, supported by the Well Newcastle Gateshead Arts Fund, are running a project enabling Chopwell residents to create a lasting digital record of the town, past and present.

The work will culminate in an exhibition of the group’s work during the summer and the content produced will be available on social media for residents and visitors to enjoy.

Here they are reviewing photographs and remembering days gone by!
