Event description

Description

This workshop invites participants to bring historical photographs, negatives and printed ephemera of Essex in the 1980s from their personal and family collections to be digitised at The Old Waterworks.

Participants will then use this material to collectively build a large-scale collage installation with artist Maeve O’Neill that encapsulates the vernacular history of 1980s Essex, covering everything from the fashion, architecture, music scenes, activism, local culture, and political climate.

The day will end with a screening of films including Peter Savage’s Tory Stories Parts 1 to 3, Gorilla Tapes’ - Death Valley Days, and more TBC.
