The Creative Society is an arts employment charity that helps young people into jobs in the creative and cultural industries.
From the early nineteen thirties to fifties, the British Council was an enthusiastic commissioner and distributor of documentaries, designed to showcase Britain to the outside world, and made by some of the finest filmmakers of the time – such as cinematographer Jack Cardiff and director Ken Annakin.
Preserved in the BFI archives, this fascinating and often beautiful archive is now being brought to life by TIME/IMAGE, a team composed of New Deal of the Mind Future Jobs Fund placements. This is the first opportunity to see a selection of these charming short films.
TIME/IMAGE is a flagship of New Deal of the Mind’s Digital Domesday Project that aims to create jobs producing creative responses to our cultural heritage using digital technologies.
This project is an exciting landmark in our Digital Domesday initiative that aims to unearth and share stories from the past by unlocking the potential of creative young people.
