Cities Are Us

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Cities are us tells the fascinating and often neglected story of Turkish baths in the UK by exploring the importance and meaning of these facilities to current local communities and their reasons for fighting for their renovations.

The film explores why the baths were closed, why it was important for the community to keep it open and search for clues in others as to what makes us feel attached to buildings.

Although the community interest is the main focus, the film also touches upon the involvement and role of others in bringing back to life the Newcastle Baths as well as the innovative partnerships to keep the baths open.
