The BFVW was a pioneering collective co-ordinated by CCCS post-graduate Roger Shannon and included members Jonnie Turpie, Alan Lovell and Heather Powell. This illustrated discussion situates the work of the BFVW in the socio-political context of the 1970s and 80s, the UK workshop movement and its relationship with the establishment of Channel Four Television. Convened by Roger Shannon and Paul Long.
Admission to all sessions is free, booking is recommended.
This event is presented as part of 'FILM/ FEMINISM/ IDENTITY/ ACTIVISM: LOOKING OUT FROM THE CCCS', a month-long season of exhibition, provocations and events investigating the impact of Birmingham's Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies (CCCS).
