The Jewellery Quarter Heritage Squad are a collective of volunteers who give their time to help the different heritage organisations in the Jewellery Quarter. Led by The Hive, they have worked with Scott Johnston to form the JQ Heritage Film Squad, which explores enjoyment and inclusivity through participatory filmmaking.

This film represents a range of organisations including The Hive, JQ Cemeteries, St Paul’s Church and the Coffin Works.  This film brings together the volunteers knowledge and passion for the area and its unique heritage, whilst sharing some fascinating facts and quirky history!

The film will screen on YouTube, and will be followed by a short discussion on Zoom with some of the JQ Heritage Squad volunteers and the team involved in the project. The links will be sent to attendees shortly before the event.

Released to celebrate the Winter Solstice 2021, this video explores some of the nocturnal animals which make the Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries their home. They might be hard to spot, but we can often see the traces they leave behind.

Emily Doyle @oldbort is a multidisciplinary visual artist who moved to the Jewellery Quarter as a student in 2015 and never left. Her practice focuses on the biological, looking for comfort in the physicality that connects us all during changing times. Throughout lockdown, Warstone Lane and Key Hill Cemeteries have been a source of inspiration and respite for Emily and the sites have shaped her creative output through 2020 and 2021, Like many, she has found the JQ Cemeteries to be a place of grounding and reflection.

Sustainability is at the forefront of Emily's work. The textile sculptures in this film were all made using reclaimed textiles, including some sourced through Scrapstore Birmingham.

This film commission was funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund, Birmingham City Council and Jewellery Quarter Development Trust
