Guerrilla Media Unit


The Guerrilla Media Unit is a group of Weston-based artists that collaborate to create original myths using contemporary media.

Want to learn new skills in filmmaking, podcasting, creative writing, community organising and more?

Want to play with fact and fiction to plant some playful, positive stories into Weston-super-Mare?

Come and join the unit!

You don’t need any particular skills to take part (although if you’re an ace photographer, digital whizz or anything else then of course we’d love for you to share your knowledge). The heart of the Unit’s work is telling tales and spreading them around town and online.

We’re particularly keen to collaborate with people who wouldn’t usually take part in arts activities – whether that be people in care homes, sleeping on the streets, or working in shops on the High Street. So over the course of the autumn we’ll be working together to invite different groups to create stories with us.

The Guerrilla Media Unit is facilitated by John Norton (theatre director, DJ and BBC Radio Producer) and produced by Terrestrial with local artists Karen Blake and Pete Goodrum.

We meet as a group at Weston Artspace every Monday evening, with people working on stories and mini projects for the Unit in their own time during the week.

Photography Challenge

We are seeking unusual photographs of Weston-super-Mare.
Images can be ‘real’ or ‘fake’ (for anyone who’s a wizard on photoshop). We’d like to use them as a starting point for creating collaborative stories.

True Tales & Fake News

Do you have an extraordinary story to tell about Weston?
We’re organising a live storytelling night to celebrate wild stories of Weston - both real and invented.
