International Day of the Girl Child: Talk & Zine Workshop

On 11th October 2017 we were invited to collaborate with the Leeds-based Angel of Youths charity on an event to address the challenges girls face and to promote girls’ empowerment. We held a zine workshop to ask girl co-creators: what words of support would you offer to a younger/older version of yourself?

Zine in a Day Workshop

On 9th July 2016 we held a one-day open workshop to plan, design, create and print a Zine. Our themes for the zine were informed by the growing conversations of the collective: Home, Community and Life. We co-created a 30 page zine in just one day!

Leeds Dérive

In May 2016 we joined staff and students from Leeds Trinity University for Leeds Dérive. In a psychogeography event to celebrate the original launch of the Situationist International manifesto, we explored an area of Leeds we were unfamiliar with, recording our findings along the way. We co-created a short film which depicts a dystopian version of post-Brexit Leeds- through the eyes of its only remaining inhabitant.

British Art Show 8 Social

In November 2015 we visited the British Art Show 8 exhibition at Leeds City Art Gallery. Exploring the galleries with various portable and wearable recording devices, we set out to make a film which captured our digital imprint of the event. The final short film was co-edited online using social media platforms to hold conversations and make edit decisions.

Maisaa’s Abbey Dash

On 15th November 2015 Maisaa Tanjour ran the 10K Leeds Abbey Dash as part of a small team, raising £3,000 for the Red Cross Syria Crisis Appeal. We were there to cheer her on and gather footage of the event. The finished film was fully co-created by our collective over a series of conversation and co-editing workshops.

Out of the UK

In June 2015 we began production for our first co-created short film. The film was based on the experiences of Nathlie Yang, a writer and former international student from Taiwan. For our first workshop we planned and filmed an interview with Nathalie. Later we ran further workshops to develop co-editing skills. During the post-production stages we continued our conversations with Nathalie online, so that she was still able to collaborate and make edit decisions.
