Channel 3 Project presented ‘3 days of Action!’ at Onca Gallery Brighton, as the concluding event of our two year partnership. Rocket Artists hosted a wonderful three day event including an exhibition showcasing the films created by educators and learners which explored their wide range of practices and approaches touching on identity, inspiration, process and performance.
Day one at ONCA Gallery began with the visiting partners receiving a gallery tour followed by a creative group activity around planning and preparing for the seminar. After lunch we had a private screening of the films with refreshments. It was fantastic to view the films on the big screen! We had lots of quality time in the afternoon to visit Brighton and socialize with the group.
Day 2 we conducted our group evaluation of the partnership. This was really beneficial as we had a good opportunity to discuss what the successes and challenges were over the two year partnership and marked the achievements of leaners and educators. Following a lovely lunch, the seminar event kicked off which was a really exciting event attended by invited guests and members of the public. The question addresses was ‘How does the presence of the film camera have an effect on and reveal creative processes in a positive way?’ The artists spoke about their learning on the project in relation to identity, agency, inspiration, process, inclusivity and collaboration. Our films were screened during the evening with the artists present and received great feedback!
Day 3 was exhibition day, ONCA Gallery was open to the public from 11am – 4pm with an exhibition of images and and outcomes from the partnership along with the projected films.
The three day event was a fantastic celebration and conclusion to the two year Erasmus+ partnership. Both learners and educators had learned so much and were keen to develop new skills in film making and continue to share with as wide an audience as possible.
