Belonging | Session 1: Article One


Thursday, Mar 16, 2017 - Time: 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Following on from our Peace of Mind installation in December, this coming year we explore the theme of Belonging. Many of us might recognise Belonging as describing the sense of individual wellbeing that can come from feeling that ‘we belong’. How is that feeing of security affected when society is changing rapidly around us? Taking key articles from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights we invite you to join us in an initial series of five sessions exploring the implication and relevance of human rights to our sense of Belonging in our communities and nations.   From each session we will generate your different responses – spoken, drawn, recorded – from which we will create an archived contribution to the Belonging events at the end of the year. In this session we consider Article 1: ‘All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights’ with speaker plus keynote film from Amnesty International

Film | I, Daniel Blake


Thursday, Mar 30, 2017 - Time: 7:00pm - 9:30pm
Bridgwater and Taunton Unite Community Group presents Ken Loach's award-winning film I, Daniel Blake Daniel Blake (59) has worked as a joiner most of his life in Newcastle. Now, for the first time ever, he needs help from the State. He crosses paths with single mother Katie and her two young children, Daisy and Dylan. Katie’s only chance to escape a one-roomed homeless hostel in London has been to accept a flat in a city she doesn’t know, some 300 miles away. Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man’s land, caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy as played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern-day Britain. “If you only see one film this year, see this.” New Internationalist Winner - Palme d'Or - Cannes Film Festival 2016 ★★★★★ Metro, David Edwards – Daily Mirror, New Internationalist, Mark Kermode - The Observer, Morning Star, The Irish Times, Daily Star

Our latest work

Our latest news

Our latest news

Over the past 15 years, from a start-up investment of just £5000, Somerset Film has generated over £4,500,000 investment for creative media arts in Somerset, having commissioned and employed over 200 arts and media professionals.

Our films have won awards from Canada to Croatia, and have been shown at festivals around the world…

We work with people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, prioritising those at risk of social or physical isolation or exclusion. Not just in Bridgwater, but right across Somerset with projects like Family Connections and Capture Burnham, and recently our satellite Pop-up initiative.

We also work with and train artists (of all disciplines) and businesses, in a predominantly rural setting, to develop ways to communicate more effectively and flourish using the internet and new digital technology.
