Project ICE


Keeping up our IT skills can be a bit of a challenge when we are no longer in the workplace where colleagues can help or family members and friends with the time to show you how to use that great app!  But help is at hand from students at Northumbria University who run a regular fortnightly IT drop-in session in Room 107, Squires Building, 2 Sandyford Road, NE1 8SB.  

However, big or small the problem you want to solve, call in for help. You will receive one-to-one support as well as having the opportunity for interesting conversations with students studying in Newcastle.  The sessions are popular, so to book a place please call 0191 208 2701 or email [email protected] 

Doorbells: Dreaming for the Future

Doorbells: Dreaming for the Future - Film screening
Wednesday, 15th May 2019 6.00 pm at Star and Shadow Cinema, Warwick Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE2 1BB

My home, my castle, my container, my prison?
How do we imagine the future of where and how we live? Who will we live with? What can we afford? What will our lives look like and how will we manage?
This sensitive, humorous and moving performance, with original songs and live soundscapes, explores: behind our doorbells and front doors, how are we dreaming of the future?
Audience feedback
“Beautifully done and very moving.” Elders Council of Newcastle.
“A huge thank you for this great piece of work…you really are ahead of the game and others have a lot to learn from you.” Care & Repair England.
“Lovely use of humour and reverie to get the story told. Thought provoking. Alone but not lonely. But. . .food for thought. I have a husband 9 years older than me – will he still be here? Where would I like to be? Where are MY friends from school?” Audience member.
“Incredibly important story to talk about and fantastic inter-generational audience. Surprisingly entertaining for such a complicated and difficult subject. I started to know her and now want to know what happens next – what does she do? A soap opera! Some beautiful filming and loved the songs.” Audience member.
