The hardest thing to see is what is really there. JA Baker - The Peregrine (1967)
Delighted that the @bl_eap has published over 21,000 (1928-47) assets from the #hamiltonstudiosbombay archive from our #eap1117 project, including from 1939, the silent film star Sita, below. Thanks to @ArcadiaFund we will continue teaching young people care for archives. pic.twitter.com/cSwCXk5NmE— Ben Kyneswood (@kyneswood) January 31, 2023
We are Jason, a photographer and Ben, an academic.
We work with communities to surface hidden stories and help curate them into exhibitions.
Our work is a matter of social justice: everyone deserves the right to be remembered. It's not just the offical accounts that tell a city's story but much more deeply rooted, personal stories that intersect, contend and determine what a city is.
From making these stories available we can begin to consider what we can do today to make lives better. This might be an artistic response or a public conversation.
Our current work is with Arts Council England, Coventry City Council and Coventry City of Culture Trust.
