Channel 4: Self Portrait UK
Digital imaging and traditional printmaking techniques were used to create self-portraits with a group of 16 – 19 year olds on a BTEC Diploma in Multimedia at Westminster Kingsway College. Eleven of the young people were selected for the Self Portrait UK competition, which was displayed in a touring exhibition and presented at the National Portrait Gallery and on the London Underground.
Partnered by Channel 4, the National Portrait Gallery and Arts Council England, Self Portrait UK invited people of all ages to create and send in their own self-portrait and become part of a major touring exhibition that provided a real insight into the eclectic mix of identities from across the UK.
Participatory Film in Action
Free film screening and Q&A with two accomplished filmmakers in the expanding field of participatory documentary.
In Sari Stories, Sue Sudbury collaborates with a group of young women in rural India who have been trained to make videos, allowing the viewer an unprecedented view of life in many Indian villages – a world of child marriage, child labour and domestic abuse. An uplifting and at times humorous film, it tells the story of how these women are using technology to challenge tradition and transform their lives.
