The Showroom

People Make Videos, a manual for making community videos

Designed by Rosie Eveleigh
printed by Art Quarters Press


This manual is a result of Ed Webb Ingall's Communal Knowledge project, which explored the history of community video practice in London from the 1970s, working with a range of groups and individuals local to The Showroom to practice and extend the methodologies to create new videos exploring ideas of 'community'

The publication operates as a manual for setting up your own community video group, with workshop exercises, pages to copy and use for storyboarding, suggestions for structuring meetings and working with a commitment to collaboration.
