Nominated for Factual Programme of the Year at the Royal Television Society Midlands Awards 2017, JA40 is a short documentary commissioned to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Junction Arts. Based in Derbyshire, they are a fantastic, hard working participatory arts organisation with a long history of engaging and exciting community projects within the region. Talking to some of the many faces from over the last 40 years, the film looks to shine a light on how their art can and indeed has made a difference. Funded and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
