Natasha Davis’ ‘Estuary Stories is a short film recorded in the secret corners of Chatham and the dockyard, to encounter moments of laughter, loss, kindness and new beginnings, shared by your neighbours – old and new.

We worked with artist Natasha Davis to find people with memories of Medway to be part of her short film ‘Estuary Stories’.

We premiered the film at a live online event in June 2021 as part of the 2021 Estuary Festival’s Associated Programme.

Natasha was part of a Q&A with Ideas Test board member CJ Mitchell.

Some of the people featured in the film were also at the event.

A big thank you to David Pustansky for the event tech support.
