I Know This to be True explores tales of resilience, rebellion and creativity from the perspective of artists and makers born before 1949.

The films present a multi faceted view of creativity, with contributions from successful professional artists through to Sunday painters and obsessive amateur knitters. 

A creative workshop series, for those 65+, ran alongside filmmaking. The workshops were facilitated by Poppy Green and emerging artists Amy Leung, Pia Bramley, Ajay Pabial, Renata Minoldo and Mia Maxwell. The workshops ran across a variety of venues, creative spaces and community centres. They were designed to introduce participants to a range of artistic practices, engage them with the project and support them to reflect upon the role creativity has played in their lives.  

In light of recent government guidelines concerning the Covid-19 outbreak, our exhibition has moved online. We'd love your feedback, click here to share your thoughts.
