Date uploaded: November 5, 2014

Cambridge KickstART is a public art project celebrating the creation of over 100 new homes on the site of Cambridge City FC's grounds in Milton Road. The project is sponsored by Crest Nicholson and marks the club's move to shared grounds at Histon before establishing their new permanent home on the outskirts of Cambridge.

'Service - Movement - Desire' is a short film celebrating the history of Cambridge City Football Club. It is a collaboration between artist, Zoë Chamberlain, Colour Films, and animator James Conan Baker, it features unique footage from the final match played at Milton Road intertwined with animation and footage from Light Rider: Making The Move.

The film explores the site’s evolution from ancient gravel pit to the home of Cambridge City, and is part of a wider public art project, Cambridge KickstART, sponsored by Crest Nicholson, who are developing the site to create 100+ new homes.

Service|Movement|Desire is the first commission in the KickstART series of projects. Between 2014-16 there will be a number of other commissions. To find out more about the project click here.
