Documenting 'Lifting the Creek' Creative Responsesby Geoff Hume-Cook
Direct Link To Media
This clip is the first piece of 'documentation' produced by Transforming Images Ltd., Geoff Hume-Cook's production vehicle.
Aware of the Houghton Valley Community Group's activities since late 2009 and as involved as possible, I have a commitment to recording and producing community-based media. Participatory video for research and community development is my main professional focus (see Kindon, Hume-Cook & Woods in Milne, Mitchell & De Lange 2012, Handbook of Participatory Video, AltaMira).
From January 2014 when we knew that Water-Wheel was coming up, we have intensified the 'creative responses' to the Lifting the Creek project of the HVCG. I have worked with several of the artists/activists in this group to have photographic and/or video elements available for Water-Wheel, and the future activities of 'Lifting the Creek'
Full HD and longer versions of these necessarily smaller clips for Water-Wheel will be posted after the presentation event.
