Participatory Practice - Media Production for Social Change
Together with Tony Gammidge, Julia Winckler will reflect on participatory practice and key themes that have emerged over the years.
For the past 17 years, Julia has been involved in participatory and community art practice and has developed a creative and specific approach to facilitating arts projects, which draws on degrees in Photography, Anthropology, and social work.
Tony Gammidge has been running collaborative Video and Animation projects with patients on medium secure units for the last 5 years. He will screen a number of these films including Living in Darkness a hybrid cross between Wallace & Gromit and Reservoir Dogs directed by Hitchcock, a tale of abuse, revenge, self harm, mental illness and recovery and Chester a film about one man's journey from being a boy soldier in Somalia to mental illness and incarceration in the UK.
Please be aware there will be a screening of a film containing images of violence and self harm.
