Expanded social documentary: strategies, techniques, and experimental forms.


Photo, video, research and storytelling master class led by Memefest curator Scott Townsend not to be missed!

A 7 day course introducing new techniques and ideas of social documentary.

Using different ways of recording and interpreting (sound, interview, photo, video, etc.) people and their practices and environment, students will create, edit, synthesize and communicate their research as creative and experimental visual form through broadsheets, using text and image, or through time based forms such as short video or audio pieces. This work will be exploratory in nature. Students will be supported technically and creatively, and will be assisted with previous exploratory research done in 2015. Students will collaborate in teams as needed to facilitate their successful completion of the class. The master class will also tentatively include a one day trip to Corfu for a related conference at Ionian University (details are being developed and will be updated on this site).

Venue : Ionion Center for the Arts and Culture /Island Kefalonia-Greece

Eligibility: The class is addressed to artists, designers, video artists, photographers, animators or anybody interested developing a new practice.

Time : MAY 16TH to May 23th 2016/ Opening Date for Applications : January 30th 2016 - no deadline

Instructor : Scott Townsend
