Community media and cultural politics on Tyneside

Graham Jeffery, Hugh Kelly

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    How can we ensure, in the process of using participatory flm-making for social transformation, that community voices are authentic and representative? I have collaborated with an academic to write a commentary on a flm which draws on
    30 years of using video inclusively in North East England. The flm depicts the persistent problems of poverty, exclusion, and long-term unemployment. The authors unpack and interrogate claims that narratives of individual and social transformation are being infated, and explore the role of participatory flm-making and community media as research methods. They highlight the value of collaborative relationships between flmmakers and communities as they explore the powers that shape people’s lives. Integral to this chapter is a 30-minute flm: Remaking Society: Communities on the Edge (Swingbridge Media 2013)
