The Story of Crossroads Women

Video, Photography & Illustration Project

Would you like to make a multi-media story about a vital women's centre in Kentish town, London?

Would you like to develop new skills in your photography/video practice?

Project Description

As part of the Made Possible by Squatting exhibition (September 2013) an illustrated pop-up book was made of the story of Crossroads Women's Centre by Cadi St John. The book traces the different buildings and activities of Crossroads from the 1970's to the current building in Kentish town, London, which hosts over 15 groups including the Black Women's Rape Action Project, International Wages for Housework Campaign, and Single Mothers' Self-Defence.

As the next stage of the project, photographer Rob Logan will make a video story of Crossroads Women's centre using stock-motion pictures of the pop-up book alongside archive images, photography of the current work at the centre, and audio recordings with founding members and volunteers.

The video will be published as an on-line resource with Made Possible by Squatting, and showcase as part of an exhibition for International
Woman's Week 2014 at the Crossroads Women's Centre.
