The Dividing Line Film Screening
  • Barbican Theatre, Castle Street, Plymouth PL1 2NJ

Save event

A film exploring the relationship that the Barne Barton Community has with the River Tamar, which the community experiences an unfortunate lack of access to

This film beautifully explains how important it is to these people and how it has shaped its development as a community.  

The community voices are layered with archival footage from South West Film and Television Archive. Barne Barton is a former MOD housing estate, cut off from the River Tamar and the City of Plymouth by MOD land and a railway line. The community is currently developing a Neighbourhood Plan, a pilot project for Plymouth, which will give local people a voice in future developments in the estate and map out what is needed for the community to thrive. 

The evening will use the film as a starting point for discussions around Neighbourhood Planning as well as achievements in the Barne Barton community. It is sure to be engaging. The Dividing Line is a film by Mark Vernon commissioned by Take A Part and the River Tamar Project.

Admission is free but places are limited.

About the River Tamar Project

The River Tamar Project is a public art programme that commissions and works with creative practitioners who occupy the space between art, architecture, design, science and technology. Working with the communities who live on its banks, our mission is to explore a future human use for the River Tamar.

The River Tamar Project was formerly established in 2012. Now based at Plymouth University, we form part of the public arts programme at Peninsula Arts and are partnered with the Marine Institute and Centre for Sustainability.
