The Pan African Cinema archive, incorporating cassettes, posters, stills, scripts and ephemera, has been assembled over the past three decades by curator June Givanni.
Academic support should now enable her to make the collection more accessible through a semi-permanent studio archive that can be located in partner spaces for years at a time.
Reflections from the Future, created by the Tine Bech Studio, asked viewers to “use [its] reflective surfaces imaginatively” by trying to “beam messages back [from 2050] to help year 2016 envision mid-21st-century education”.
Other partnerships displayed “superpianos”, fabrics that translate music into woven patterns and ideas for “exchanging money in a more sociable way, through a handshake, high five, hugs or a tap dance”.
Creativeworks London, one of four exchange hubs funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, supported a total range of 143 such collaborations.
Sixty-three per cent of the awardees, says director Morag Shiach, “feel their projects will have a real impact on London’s creative economy”.
