This one-day exhibition brings together works from New Voices, a photography project run by the Migrants Resource Centre. These works were produced over a period of four months with six young people aged between 18 and 24 who were invited to produce photographic work around the themes of culture, migration and life in London using analogue photography techniques. A book of the work produced will be available to view and order from the exhibition. Also on show are works from Young Voices, an offshoot photography project by 13-15 year olds at JusB Youth Centre in Bromley, as well as works from Cultural Mosaic, a media4us photo competition.

Implicated Theatre, the theatre group in residence at the Centre for Possible Studies will be running an open workshop from 3-5pm.

November’s Free Cinema School Salon revisits the histories of Pedagogical Film in the UK. Hosted by artist, Margareta Kern with artists from no.w.here, see excerpts from videos that were made as part of the television series ‘Democracy at Work’ – a collaboration between the BBC Further Education department, Trade Union Education Service, Workers Educational Association and Sheffield University Extra-Mural department, aired on the BBC in 1978. These television programmes were accompanied by a detailed booklet, and available to trade union members to be used as tools for education, agitation and worker organisation. The videos cover topics such as job satisfaction, industrial democracy, safety at work, worker representatives on the board, role of the women in trade union movement, nursery provision in industry, obtaining information from management and history of collective bargaining. In re-visiting these videos, this Salon will explore how films were utilised historically as pedagogical tool for empowerment of the workers, in order to re-think its current status in the context of contemporary disempowerment of unions and workers.
