This is the very occasional newsletter from Pete Ashton to which you subscribed at some point.
It’s been a while - I’ve mostly been deep into co-ops and composting this year and not writing much - but I have an event coming up this weekend! In a venue!
As some of you will know, my good friend Andy Howlett finished his feature documentary about Birmingham’s old central library this year. He decided that 5 years of feedback and long conversations about Birmingham meant I’d earned a Executive Producer credit, and so now I’ve executive produced a movie.
Paradise Lost: History in the Unmaking premiered online in April and is having it’s first actual screening in a cinema this Sunday at the Mac. Afterwards there’ll be a Q&A with Andy and myself, chaired by the incomparable Cathy Wade.
Here’s a nice review of the film.
And then once that’s over it’s back to composting and co-ops. Maybe I’ll write about them some day.
All my love,
