Would you like to make a

new skills in your photography/video practice?
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.
