with London Community Video Archive

A series of free screenings centred around watching community film projects from the London Community Video Archive.

These events will be centred around watching two community film projects from the archive called Fly A Flag For Poplar (1974) and All You Need Is An Excuse ((1972).

Both films document community groups in 1970's London coming together and using creative activities to make a difference in their local area.

Following the meeting there will be a chance to dicuss what is going on in your neighbourhood and share your ideas and opinions on what art can do, and can't do, for communitities today.
