This event is a collaborative film-making workshop about making films collectively with filmmaker Ed Webb-Ingall


Over the space of an afternoon participants will come together (part radical theatre troupe, part documentary film crew, and part community group). The gallery will become stage, centre, meeting house and workshop exploring how a camera affects our behaviour, and how it can be used to affect the way a film is received. During the event we will play games, film as a group and seek to answer questions such as: Can a film be made collaboratively and non-hierarchically and what might this mean? How might a camera work to build a community and enable representation or challenge misrepresentation? How might the images filmed suggest the nature of that community, how it was built and structured and the process of its creation? Drawing on the history and theory of activist and oppositional film making in the UK (from the newsreel movement of the late 1960s, The Berwick street Collective, Banner Theatre, The Workshop Act and Community Film Groups) this will be a workshop for those interested in how cameras are used to represent, mis/represent ourselves and others and how cameras affect and effect behaviour when making and watching such work. Please bring a device to film with, wear loose comfortable clothing and be happy to discuss the ownership of the images filmed during the workshop. Booking for this event is essential:
