Northern Ireland Now: Contemporary Collecting

Northern Ireland Now: Contemporary Collecting

A contemporary collecting project in partnership with Northern Ireland Screen which addresses underrepresentation in the Digital Film Archive and champions equality, diversity and inclusion.

Northern Ireland Now: Contemporary Collecting, is an innovative outreach and digitisation project from Northern Ireland Screen and Nerve Centre that will increase representation in the Digital Film Archive — a database that contains hundreds of hours of moving image footage from 1887 to the present day.

The project will give voice to and prioritise material relating to underrepresented communities including ethnic minorities, diversity of religious belief, disabled people, neurodivergent people, LGBTQIA+ individuals and working-class communities (especially young men), to address imbalances in our collections.

With this in mind we thought it would be great to have our D/deaf, Disabled and Neurodiverse community involved – our artists, our audiences, our signers and interpreters, our staff, our friends and in general whoever is interested and in touch with University of Atypical for Arts and Disability.

We’re looking for a group of 10-15 contributors. There will be around 4 workshops to attend from February, of approx. 2-3 hours each, but we’re happy to be flexible and listen to your needs. The workshops for our group will take place in the Ledger Studio, at our premises.

If you’re interested in taking part, please add your details to the form linked below.

Please let us know by Friday 19th January 2024
