Women curating and remixing archive video material to tell a new story

As part of Mariana’s research on intercultural matters, digital tools and the re use of AV archive materials, she has been running a Video workshop in Monika Naiset Liito, a multicultural women’s association here in Finland. Participants were coming from Egypt, China and Nigeria and other countries. The workshop facilitate immigrant women to create their own stories using audiovisual archives. Three videos were created as a result.

Lovely stories and wonderful women

On the 5.03 as part of the International Women’s week, the videos were shown in Monika’s premises and the participants received their certificates. We discussed on the process of making these videos and on the future possibilities for showing and publishing these videos. Last Saturday 7.03 , there was an exhibition on the making-off the video and the videos in Caisa Cultural Center as part of the International Women’s day. The audience was positive and encourage us to continue this work in collaboration with immigrants.
