I’ll be in London this weekend working on a scratch theatre piece with Screen Bandita, cooking up some collage poems with your old photos and spools of super 8 film. It’s at the Battersea Arts Centre, Sunday 3 November, 10am-1pm, and it’s totally free. See you there!
Screen Bandita and Ryan Van Winkle invite you to contribute to their participatory, community gathering: a welcoming space in which to share, speak and see.
Do you have any spools of Super 8 film or old slides gathering dust in the attic? Bring them along and we’ll project them for you! And if you have any old photographs you’d like to share, come and display them in our pop-up gallery! Soundtracking the afternoon will be a pair of antiquated Russian gramophones and a myriad of interesting records from our collection.
Poet Ryan Van Winkle would be pleased to see any old newspaper clippings, scrapbooks or to talk about memorable local events. We’ll also have copies of posters and clippings from the BAC archive and Ryan will be leading a workshop on ‘collage poems’ melding your own history with that of the area.
Suitable for young and old, this friendly, informal session is a chance to rediscover films from your collection, as well as an opportunity share memories, recollections and stories.
