The project will involve research and filming in six locations selected for their diverse geographies (human and natural), size and cultures -

  • London

  • Hoy, Orkney

  •  Chico, California

  • Nunavut, Canada

  • Tadami, Fukushima, Japan

  • Bergen, Norway

 Staying at least 4 weeks in each , I will work with a general practitioner from the community who has agreed to allow me access to  patients so that I can talk with them individually and in groups. Immersing myself in the local community and participating in the life of its populus I will seek to understand their particular needs and challenges, and to shape a meaningful narrative about what different communities value, and how they strive to achieve a sense of wellbeing in their lives.

Hoy, Orkney

The dramatic coastline of Hoy greets visitors travelling to Orkney by ferry from the Scottish mainland. The island has about 420 inhabitants living on its 55.3 sq miles. Statistically the population can be considered ageing which may be a reason for the relatively low unemployment. It is generally considered to be a place with a good quality of life.
