An exhibition created by the public
This is the second phase of the three year Social Archive project.
Through workshops led by artists Undocumentary, project participants will take on the role of socio-economic historians, making short films documenting the stories of the people working and living in the area. They will document their impressions, stories and reflections on their economic futures, creating an archive of predictions, hopes, aspirations and potential disappointments. The films created will be displayed in an exhibition at Rivington Place from 12 - 21 July and will be available to view online.
