Triple Harvest – Call out for new video work

Peter Paul’s 1960’s documentary film Double Harvest told the story of the Steelworks’ impact on Corby, where the land was harvested for iron ore, returning to farmland for future crop yields. In 2016, Corby’s population was projected to increase faster than any other borough outside of London, with much of the land now being developed for homes welcoming new migrations of people to the town.

We are inviting artists to remix Double Harvest, alongside footage from three other Corby heritage films to create new narratives through the extraction of archival film material.

We will be commissioning up to six new artist works, with a fee of £750 for each commission.
