About

IC-Visual Lab is co-presenting with Creative Youth Network a series of workshops using the content and materials from the British Empire and Commonwealth Collection, held at Bristol Archives. Throughout a series of four workshops, you'll discuss ideas around the meanings, and functions, of historical monuments built during the British Empire in the UK.

What will we do? 

You'll learn about the cultural significance of these monuments and investigate what past-values they represented, and whether they hold any relevance nowadays. 

You'll also construct monuments that represent modern, and contemporary values. You'll be using images from the British Empire and Commonwealth Collection, and applying storytelling and photographic techniques.

Each workshop will be lead by a professional in their specialist area, and participants will learn different skills and produce original outcomes:
