City Library Street Press is back after a short Summer break with a new program of free workshops and a submissions call out for an exciting magazine project.
On the 25th March we have Al Cossar from The Portable Film Festival discussing their 'Film Festival in your pocket', taking video to the street and how video can be used to spread a message. Alongside Al is Jeremy Weinstein who will be discussing his 'Docummunity' project, an open source film project allowing documentary makers to call on and contribute to a pool of video clips.
City Library Street Press is an opportunity for all of those interested in the many aspects of street press to gather and discuss ideas, techniques and projects. Our last season of Workshops were a roaring success with every session fully booked, covering many topics from zines to creative writing, page layout and cartooning.
