Workshop: CONTROL – Sat 22nd Oct

The CONTROL Workshop for Young People

As part of Miniclick’s CONTROL programme, curated with Gordon MacDonald, we are hosting a workshop for people aged 6 to 16 on Saturday 22nd October, 11am to 5pm. The workshop is free, but places are limited to 6 people (plus a parent or guardian each).


Saturday 22nd October, 11am to 5pm

68MS, Middle Street, Brighton

Free / Limited to 6 People

Email to book


Facilitated by writer Sofia Kathryn Smith and photographer and teacher Bryony Good, the workshop is loosely based on Simon Menner’s work, False Arrest which will be exhibited in the same venue as part of the programme and depicts a series of narrative staged photos from the Stasi archives that tell the story of an arrest. Participants will join as a group to create a story using a series of simple writing exercises and games, before hitting the streets to recreate the story in photographs. The photographs will then be collated and printed as a short ‘zine for the participants.  The workshop is ideal for anyone interested in storytelling and photography and is suitable for ages 6 to 16.
