A digital storytelling and filmmaking project working with the people of Brighouse to uncover and share stories of the town, their lives and the ways these have been shaped by water. These stories will form the basis of a short film that will form the centrepiece of a sharing event at Brighouse Civic Hall 4th September 2017. They will also be shared alongside photos and videos of Brighouse here. Freedom Studios will work with Brighouse artists Lee Barnes, Lucy Badrock (North Park Pictures) and Imran Ali. The film will then be screened at The Piece Hall on the 30th September and 1st October. A Happier Valley is a Community Commission part of Landlines and Watermarks by 509 Arts, funded by Calderdale Council, Calderdale Community Foundation, and Arts Council England.
