Northern Electric 97

A tale of love and loss, taking us back to when the Ouse teemed with working barges, you knew your place or else - and jazz was the devil itself.

Northern Electric are one of our Multimedia Bursary recipients. We set up our bursary to enable artists to create experiences such as digital works, installations, films or performances as part of York Open Studios.
