Curators Talks Theater Gwan, Fishguard & Kings College.

On the 19th September 2015 Helen Knowles was asked to travel to Pembrokeshire where she gave a talk to an audience at the Theater Gwan in Fishguard and screen the film Born by Andy Lawrence and Judith Kurutac. This was funded as part of the Holy Hiatus series.


A really lively discussion was held afterwards. To watch this talk please follow this link.


On the 29th September Helen Knowles gave a lecture about the collection and Youtube Portraits and held a series of workshops with midiwfery students at Kings College in London. Students drew from Youtube birth videos and made animated strips of quick drawings.
