On the transformation of everyday culture in an era of liquid modernity

Our books

Initially with Deptford.TV, and later with Inclusion Through Media, we collaboratively created a number of books, all having in common that they deal with new media. The two Deptford.TV diaries primarily act as a documentation of the Deptford-based community-TV project initiated by Adnan Hadzi. Both these books and the project itself act as explorations of the urban change taking place in this area, and as contemporary critiques of the existing media distribution systems. The Converge manual is a hands-on guide to publishing your own film material on the Net, while Inclusion Through Media is an ambitious reader adjoining the UK-wide project with the same name, where youths across Britain were engaged to make their own audiovisual media in different ways, facing different obstacles depending on their varying social backgrounds.

Deptford.TV Diaries

Deptford.TV diaries [autumn 2006] Deptford.TV is an audio-visual documentary project, tracing the regeneration process of Deptford (south-east London) in collaboration with SPC.org media lab, Bitnik.org, Boundless.coop, Liquid Culture and Goldsmiths College. Since September 2005 they have assembled audiovisual material around the area, asking community members, video artists, film-makers, visual artists and students to contribute statements, feedback and critique of the ongoing process of urban change in Deptford. The unedited as well as edited media content is being made available on the Deptford.TV database and distributed over the Boundless.coop wireless network. The media is licensed through open content licenses such as Creative Commons and the GNU general public license.

This book is a compilation of theoretical underpinnings, interviews and written documentation of the project.

Inclusion Through Media

Inclusion Through Media [autumn 2007] ITM is a programme of projects across the UK which use audio-visual media to engage young people and excluded individuals and communities. It focuses on projects that bring the target groups together with media professionals to produce high-quality products for maximum impact. ITM projects stress innovative methods and participatory approaches. One of ITM’s objectives is using ICT for the production and distribution of learning materials and products developed by partners and target groups.

The book (edited by Tony Dowmunt, Mark Dunford and Nicole van Hemert) brought together critical insights and themes explored in the ITM programme. It offers first hand accounts of the work, together with critical analysis of the processes it involves and the policy issues it raises. It explores how working creatively with media can contribute to social cohesion, and points the way to new media, youth and social policy.
