Say hello to...
Say hello to some of the new organisations we have recently welcomed to Crystallised, if we’re doing our job properly you’ll be seeing a lot more of these folk this year!
Chinese Independent Film Network
We’ll be working with the Chinese Independent Film Network, based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, until November 2019; delivering Earth in Crisis; a touring season of eco-documentaries, visiting cinemas in Newcastle, London, Sheffield, Liverpool and Edinburgh.
The newly-formed Chinese Independent Film Network UK has been made possible through a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). Based out of Newcastle University, CIFN-UK is driven by the vision of Dr. Sabrina Qiong Yu (Senior Lecturer in Chinese and Film Studies, Newcastle University)to explore, research, preserve and protect the independent films which have been produced in China over the last 30 years, but have been marginalised and largely inaccessible through mainstream channels.
The Earth in Crisis tour will present eight award-winning films covering a range of environmental issues from waste, coal-mining, Three Gorges Dam, the Sichuan Earthquake and post-disaster recovery and reconstruction. The films reveal a hidden image of China’s environmental crisis under its drastic economic development over the past few decades; and as such provide a necessary starting point for reflection, discussion and response.
Crystallised are delivering project management services, plus social media marketing, PR, audience development and in-venue marketing.
FIRST Breakthrough part of First Network
FIRST Breakthrough is a youth led matching service connects young people with opportunity, experience and jobs. We’re super excited to be working with this mould-breaking organisation until March 2020, helping them to bring the business to market, raise awareness through social media, content creation, events and PR activity to connect young people with businesses in the North East - helping to create a vibrant, sustainable and flourishing economy.
Family Arts Campaign
This marks our second year working with Family Arts Campaign to support their Fantastic for Families initiative, involving nationwide promotional and press activity, influencer marketing, social media and content creation to encourage families to experience the arts together, driving traffic to a dedicated Fantastic for Families website and working regionally to increase visitor numbers to specific arts venues and events around the country.
