ELFM presented a week long festival of live words and music in June 2011: Writing on Air, our first-ever broadcast literature festival together with another 24-hour musicathon
Meltdown: mannish boys | 2004
Photos put together during our work at West Yorkshire Foundries in 2004. We wanted to show the workers what we had been doing so created this presentation and played it on a loop in the smokers' shelter. Very positive feedback before we got closed down...too many people asking for cigarette breaks all of a sudden!
Video of West Yorkshire Foundries in 2004 before it was closed down. The last aluminium smelting factory in the UK. Heads Together worked with the 600 staff to document the place before it went. Former workers still maintain the website at http://www.fettling.com
A space to float 2007
Only 40 years after it had been built, the decision was taken to demolish Leeds International Pool. Heads Together worked with swimmers and divers at the Pool to make sure there was a record...
Zoom Zoom Zillmere | 2003
Heads Together was commissioned to work in Zillmere; a multicultural suburb of Brisbane in Queensland. We worked for 4 months, creating this film which was screened outdoors on the main street in Zillmere.
TOFTS | 2001
Heads Together made a documentary film in the Burmantofts area of East Leeds in 2001. The film was projected outdoors in four different locations. A good time was had by all!
Home Zones: The UK Experience | 2003
With the Methleys being one of the first Home Zones in the UK, a whole raft of Home Zone schemes were being created across the country. Heads Together were asked to talk to the people involved and share the learning.
Screen On The Wall: Mind The Road | 1998
Back working in the Methleys, trying to create one of the country's first Home Zones. People used to say that kids didn't play on the streets any more. That's not what we'd noticed!
At Home In My Street | 1997
Heads Together worked with Transport 2000 and the Children's Play Council to organise a trip for a group of interested residents to visit woonerven (living streets) in the Netherlands. We filmed the trip so that we could share the learning with groups in the UK campaigning for the introduction of Home Zones.
Laughing At Life | 1991
Laughing at Life was a performance and installation created in a series of Art Gallery residencies by Heads Together in 1991. The video was filmed at the Mappin Gallery in Sheffield and documents some of the work. The starting point for the project was the question that everyone seems to ask themselves at some point in their lives "Am I going mad?"
Transition To Work
Film made in 1998 about Heads Together's work at Shipley College with the Transition To Work Course
The Methleys Screen on the Wall
One of the Methleys Screen on the Wall presentations from 1999. Every summer Heads Together put on an "On the Streets" festival as part of the campaign to redevelop the streets as public shared space: to create one of the country's first Home Zones.
