Cuckoos and straw bears: Alchemy 2015

Five years a haven for moving-image artists and their work in the Scottish Borders, the Alchemy Film & Moving Image Festival this year mounted installations and performances everywhere from a textile mill to a storage warehouse and a converted business centre.

In the Scottish Borders, amongst the rolling countryside of the valley of the Teviot, equidistant from Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne, the town of Hawick (pronounced Hoick) plays host to the annual Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, now in its fifth year. Originally a collaboration between Alchemy Film & Arts, Heart of Hawick and Creative Arts Business Network (CABN), the festival brings local and international experimental film and artists’ movies together in the town’s main cinema hub as well as at an assortment of venues and spaces beyond.

“The PoetryFilm Archive 2002-2015″ presentation at the AHRC Pararchive conference at The University of Leeds

IMG_5267

I was delighted to give a paper called “The PoetryFilm Archive 2002-2015” at the AHRC’s Pararchive conference at The University of Leeds last week. It was a very interesting two days, including a fascinating discussion about heutagogy – many thanks to the Pararchive team for the invitation. Some tweets from the day are below, and a photograph of the main lecture theatre (featuring wifi-enabled chairs) is above.

Brilliant loved the presentation and the artistry. I am searching for links :-) Congratulations!
Really interesting talk by Zata Kitowski on – glorious snippets of poetry-film. Inspiring!
Great talk at fab conference in Leeds!
