This Trust Idea

THIS TRUST IDEA is a 30minute video by artist Andrew Wilson (2020).


A moving image collage which playfully weaves together found footage to present a complex reflection on our notions of trust, especially with regard to social and political predicaments regarding coercion, expertise, conspiracy theory, collective action and participatory democracy.

A public screening of the full 30min version of THIS TRUST IDEA will be programmed in the new year. This will be either online or in the cinema, conditions pending. Keep an eye on the website for details.

The video is a co-commission between Allenheads Contemporary Arts’ CALL CENTRE residency and The Star and Shadow Cinema MICRO PROJECT

COMMISSIONS - both initiated in 2020 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.


CALL CENTRE is a collaborative residency which invited regional, national and international artists from contrasting rural and urban areas to reflect and pool their Covid-19 experience. From their ‘outposts’ six satellite artists responded on a variety of divergent themes including home, travel, trust, confinement, fragility, care and motherhood.

MICRO PROJECT COMMISSIONS is an Emergency Fund, supported by Arts Council of England (ACE) which has supported 37 Micro projects to be delivered and completed before the end of the year. The commissions represent the healthy diversity of The Star and Shadow Cinema with projects from all ages, backgrounds and genders.
