Reinventing the City is an enlightening one-off festival across NewcastleGateshead this autumn, exploring Tyneside's reimagination of itself through 200 years of industrial and post-industrial change.
Reinventing the City was initiated by the Amber film and photography collective and its Side Gallery will have an exhibition about Byker.
Finnish photographer Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen, who is part of the collective, first documented Byker 40 years ago and in 2003 she returned to make a new portrait of the estate.
A new documentary growing out of her work will also be screened at the Side Cinema during the festival.
