Immerse yourself in Moving Image Art:
Free workshops sessions over seven weeks
A fantastic opportunity over seven weeks to experiment with film and video. We’re creating, with Lumen, a project space within PSL for artists to explore and develop your interest and practice in moving image.
By joining in on some or all of the workshop activity you will gain hands on knowledge, opportunities to discuss artists’ moving image and produce work of your own. All workshops are run by professional artists.
We are actively encouraging you to make experimental new works in this intensive period. These will then be exhibited to the public in our screening space, alongside our main exhibition I Can Still See You (17 March – 12 June). Workshops take place at PSL on Thursdays from 18 March.
