4PM: WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO IS MAKE POPULAR POLITICS: THE BIRMINGHAM FILM AND VIDEO WORKSHOP
The BFVW was a pioneering collective co-ordinated by CCCS post-graduate Roger Shannon and included members Jonnie Turpie, Alan Lovell and Heather Powell. This illustrated discussion situates the work of the BFVW in the socio-political context of the 1970s and 80s, the UK workshop movement and its relationship with the establishment of Channel Four Television.
Convened by Roger Shannon, Professor of Film and Television at Edge Hill University, and Paul Long, Professor of Media and Cultural History at Birmingham City University.
Admission free, booking recommended at eventbrite.com.
These events are presented as part of 'FILM/ FEMINISM/ IDENTITY/ ACTIVISM: Looking Out From the CCCS' - a month long season of exhibition, provocations and events at Vivid Projects investigating the impact of the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies (CCCS).
