This event has ended.

EU Bah Gum! Yorkshire Voices on Brexit Documentary Film Premiere #EUBahGum.

Artworks, in partnership with CameraShy, and working with a team of local community volunteers bravely put together a project idea last year to address some of the issues that have arisen and divided public opinion and communities following the 2016 referendum.

Our project ‘EU Bah Gum: Yorkshire Voices on Brexit’ is a community-led project that has travelled around the Yorkshire region to hold filmed debates with the aim to capture the state of limbo caused by Brexit and invite people, from the Leave and Remain perspective, to share their views and stories with others. The film is the collection of these debate sessions and includes voxpops and interviews.

By and large the debates were positive, individuals were mostly respectful of people with differing opinions and importantly we all listened. Reasons for voting were varied, responses were often emotional and some post-referendum experiences were troubling. We have invited a diverse panel to address some of the issues that have been expressed in the film that included: concerns regarding the NHS; opportunities for young people and employment; freedom of movement; ensuring on-going EU working; trade; maintaining workers’ rights; the rise in racism. You may have been following, with interest, everything to do with the referendum and Brexit from the start, or you may just be looking forward to things being over so we can move forward.

This event is an opportunity to watch a locally made film that captures a very specific moment of British history and hear the voices and opinions of people, that may share similar views to you, and others that you may never considered hearing before. It is still unclear where we will be with the negotiations come the official Brexit date of the 29th March and this event will be an opportunity to gain more understanding on what a post-Brexit Britain will mean for us individually and as a community. The important question to consider will be: how we can come together as a community to support each other through these changing times?

Panel members include: Zulfi Hussain MBE, Craig Burton Managing Director, The Works Recruitment Dr Stephen Coleman Professor of Political Communication, University of Leeds Peninah Wangari-Jones The Racial Justice Network Further panellists tbc.
