Event description
This year's visual anthropology event presents a diversity of films and interactive websites, many influenced by the pandemic.

About this Event

Welcome to our annual visual anthropology celebration of student creativity at the School of Anthropology and Conservation at the University of Kent. Students have produced diverse, engaged and personal short films and interactive web based projects on people and issues that matter to them. The title of the event hints at the obstructive and productive challenges presented by the pandemic and what it has revealed about our personal and collective identities. This year our students faced the added challenge of being in lock-down during a key period in the development and completion of their projects. Some lost relatives to the pandemic.

The usual screening event in the Gulbenkian is a highlight of the year for many of us. We present it this year online with the hope that many more people can join us and that we can gather old friends and alumni. Three collections of films and interactive websites integrates the impact of the pandemic through online discussions: 1. Communities, 2. Home & Away, and 3. Identity Trips. Each creates a conversation on a common theme through us finding links and the filling the gaps between them.

Films and interactive projects will be available to view online from the 3rd June. We recommend that you watch all the films and look at the websites from the same theme in one sitting. Each requires about one hour.

Our online event on the 10th June will include extended discussions, an alumni meet-up, a prize giving and online drinks. The discussions will be an opportunity for our filmmakers to speak about their and other films and for conversations to develop with those in the films, our international alumni, colleagues and friends.

You will need to register with Eventbrite to receive information of how to login with Zoom. You will need to download Zoom to your computer, tablet or phone.

We welcome back Professor Hugh Brody and Dr Yasmin Fedda to award the Hugh Brody Visual Anthropology Prize and the New Horizons Prize. There will also be a Public Engagement Prize and an Alumni Award selected by prize winners from last year's event.

You will need to register with Eventbrite to participate on the 10th June.
