Work is an Event

Mosa Mpehta works for Hyde Park Picture House and is on the Scalarama Leeds team. She runs pop up DIY screenings as ICONIC Presents, freelance film programming under her own name, or sometimes as Black Cinema Project – an initiative that she set up last year during lock down.

Within her role at Hyde Park Picture House she works with people, organisations, charities etc. outside of the cinema to curate interesting film events that are mutually beneficial. Mosa is passionate about using film as a tool to discuss, learn and make change.

One example of this sort of activity is the collaboration with Leeds African Communities Trust, where she is developing a new permanent African film strand for Hyde Park Picture House called ‘Cinema Africa!’

About the Podcast

Working Hours
The Story of Work in Leeds in the 2020s
What do you do?
Western Studios, Leeds presents Working Hours: a podcast series surveying the people of Leeds on their thoughts and feelings on the topic of work. I want to talk to my city about work. Why do we do it? Do we like it? What could we do differently? What will we? How does work change and how does it change us?
Leeds, the largest city in the largest county on the UK mainland, is a former imperial textile centre and is now a major UK financial centre. This series will document the city’s experiences through Lockdown, Brexit, creeping technological unemployment, new and continuing resource wars, the ongoing dismantling of the welfare state and our accelerating ecological emergency.
If you are in Leeds or from Leeds then help me to reach my target of interviewing 1000 Loiners over the 2020s. Let me ask you, what do you do?
