We work with local people to explore East London and beyond through photography and film.  

Our community projects celebrate local history and cultures, and are led by participants. 

Many of our projects are inspired by the radical film and photography found in Four Corners Archive.

We are always open to collaborations. If you have an idea for a project, please get in touch.
