The Gateway is a Community and Children's Centre in Ravenscliffe, Bradford, UK. And this is the story of how the local community created a beautiful place for them to begin regenerating their neighbourhood, out of conditions where a less determined and less well-led community might have simply given up.
We worked with the people of Ravenscliffe over a period of five years, on their vision for a building of their own and on how they would organise themselves to run it. And we saw them move from despair to elation and back again several times, before finally inviting us over to spend a week with them and make this film together in the Autumn of 2006.
A film by Sarah Horton and Ronnie Hughes, a sense of place.
