About

This study afternoon will bring together those who were involved in, and those who are researching, photographic projects and collectives of the 1970s. In order to provide a contemporary perspective, there will be contributions from those involved in contemporary ‘community' photography projects. This will stimulate debate on the ways in which these groups and collectives viewed concepts of collaboration, engagement and empowerment within community, together with a willingness to experiment with modes of production, distribution and exhibition. This raises questions of agency: who is taking the pictures and for whom within the community? Speakers include Noni Stacey, Ingrid Guyon, Valentina Schivardi, David Kendall, Jess Baines, Paul Trevor and Malcolm Dickson The event is programmed by Noni Stacey, an AHRC-funded research student, attached to the UAL Photography and the Archive Research Centre Date: Thursday 23rd May 2013, 1.30 — 5.30pm Venue: The Swedenborg Society, 20-21 Bloomsbury Way, London WC1A 2TH Open to all. Seats allocated on a first come, first served basis.
