In Conversation as Collective Strategy

In Conversation as Collective Strategy used Space 2 to connect and support Hull-based collective work through the act of film-making. Platforming the work of community education, campaign, and transformative justice organising that exists in the city.

Humber Street Gallery commissioned two new films, produced by community-focused film collective Other Cinemas in collaboration with local groups Black Heritage Collective and An Untold Story Voices, which open a dialogue to explore themes of resistance and platforming grassroots solidarity and struggle. These films were shown alongside additional material compiled by both local collectives, as well as historical works from the Cinenova collection; a non-profit organisation dedicated to distributing videos made by women.

The exhibition used film to think through our histories, connected sense of place and politics; of race, class, gender, care, and losses experienced as a community.

It presented the chance to reconsider the role that “conversation” plays in our collective future.

In Conversation as Collective Strategy was organised by guest curator Louise Shelley in collaboration with Humber Street Gallery.
