Swap & Share Picnic at Arnold Circus

On 17th July, Browse took 3 pairs of Video Specs to the Friends of Arnold Circus 'Swap & Share Picnic' as we'd been invited by the curator Alice Herrick. We asked people who came to the picnic but also participants to wear the Video Specs for a bit and record their experience. The idea was to make a little video to show how wonderful the event was but also how great a community there is in & around Arnold Circus, thanks to the great effort of the Friends.

The music was curated by End of the Road festival and Rough Trade Shops and the whole day was wonderful! Spit cherries to make tunes, eat pani puris with St Hilda's, have your portrait taken and also painted... Lots lots going on. The video will tell you more, just watch it!

Filmed and narrated by:
Alex Djao, Asma, Beatrice, Daniele Di Pede, Gillian Burton, H, Ho Ruin, Imyaz, Jaida, Joh, K, Karen Janody, Livvy, Mahmuda, Marine Shah, Martha, Megan Charnley, Oona, Pam, Q, Rebecca Collings, Richard, Rohima, Sonia, and Steve la Jolie.

Browse_feat. Teresa Cisneros

As Teresa works ( atIniva - Institute of International Visual Arts), and lives locally, she is very well placed to talk about the area.

She focus on Shoreditch High St, for she spends a lot of time there, and the local economy is so diverse and interesting that there is too much to say already. She says it all better, so why not watch the video.

We're really interested in Iniva's current project'Social Archive One'where participants become citizen journalist during workshops, and more.
Basically, we agree that people should be empowered more, and have more of a direct say.
