More than a circle of chairs: A collaborative video workshop

Over the course of an afternoon, together, we will experiment with different techniques and methods to record a variety of group formations. We will try out a number of approaches to collective representation, from one-on-one interviews to group discussions. Drawing on documentaries, community videos and artist films, we will explore what it means to document collective conversations.

This will be a practical workshop. Please come willing to be on camera and experiment behind the camera. No previous experience necessary. We will supply equipment and refreshments.
