The Showroom

People Make Videos Open Workshop

Saturday 16 July 2016


Are you interested in learning more about collective and collaborative video making?

This was a free one-off workshop run by People Make Videos where visitors could learn more about what they were doing and to try their hands at being part of the video making process. No experience was necessary and visitors received a free manual.

Since 2014 as part of the Communal Knowledge programme Ed Webb-Ingall and members of the project's People Make Videos group have been working together to address the history of community video practice in London from the 1970s.

This workshop is part of the summer 2016 exhibition Communal Knowledge at Work

This event was 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.


This project was commissioned as part of Communal Knowledge which was generously supported by Paul Hamlyn Foundation, City Bridge Trust, the City of London Corporation’s Charity, John Lyon’s Charity and Garfield Weston Foundation.
