Since late 2014 Ed Webb-Ingall has been working with The Showroom and four groups local to the gallery to explore the history, practice and relevance of community video in London from the 1970s.
For five days this summer the gallery will be opened up as a space to further these discussions and make new videos. In addition we are inviting local filmmakers, amateur documentary makers and home video producers to show their work alongside the new works at the Open Day on 1 August.
This event is part of the project Ed Webb-Ingall: People Make Videos: UK Community Video from the 1970s to now, 2015–2017, in collaboration with Penfold Hub, King Solomon Academy, Church Street Library English Speaking Group and Church Street residents.
A filmmaker and writer with an interest in exploring practices and forms of collaboration, Webb-Ingall is currently a TECHNE PhD candidate at Royal Holloway University in Surrey where his research focuses on the history and practice of community video in the UK between 1968 and 1981.More
