Part of Edinburgh Fringe.
47 Newham health workers were filmed talking about their experiences of the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Frank and tender conversations bring into focus the complexity of each health professional’s experiences; the challenges they faced and the compromises forced upon them. Their stories reveal moral struggles resulting in mental health challenges and frustrations and how this compares to the official narrative of ‘heroes’. They speak of resilience, peer support and hopes for the community they serve. Join us for an evening of film, live installation and sound, remembering an extraordinary time, population and place.
