TV Dinners x Memory Dance: Don't Rubbish the Inner City

Tickets free / suggested donation £5-10 on the door

Don't Rubbish the Inner City (1989) is a community video documentary produced thirty years ago by SCRAP (Sheffield Community Recycling Action Programme) as a snapshot of ‘re-use, repair and recycling’ at the end of the decade. Memory Dance has newly digitised a copy of this rarely seen U-matic tape and will be screening this special episode of TV Dinners.

Enjoy the 50-minute film with a vegan dinner and music, followed by a Q&A.

Doors open 6:30pm, food served 7pm, film starts 7:45pm.

Memory Dance aims to build a greater community understanding of our moving image heritage so it can can be shared and preserved for the future with events based in Sheffield and across the country.

Originally initiated in London 2016 as part of a record label release that supported the work of the Alzheimer’s Society. The project aimed to raise dementia awareness amongst a younger audience who may not be conscious of the issues at stake surrounding dementia care, reminiscence, music, memory, and moving image heritage.

Having launched a sold-out event at Rough Trade East, London (2016), Memory Dance has since worked alongside Sheffield music festival No Bounds, pushing at the fringes of delivering screen heritage and electronic music to diverse audiences.

TV Dinners is part of Foodhall's Screen branch, bringing the community together by creating a space in which film, food, and conversation is shared.
