What happens when a human who wants to change the world meets a camera? This year, as part of our Exchange programme, alongside our free film programme, we’ve kickstarted a rebellion in the making of new work through a series of micro commissions and artist residencies.

We’re launching each commission in the lead up to a 3-day celebration of screenings, conversations and workshops to share learning from online and community exchanges.

Open and free to all, this public celebration runs in parallel with our Rebellions strand as part of our Autumn programme in Sheffield.

The commissions are with:
NeuroLove in partnership with Raising Films
Sail for Climate Action
Israac and The Diaspora Multimedia Hub
Three artists residencies, featuring Farzana Khan of Healing Justice London and an international exchange between artists,
Suzie Larke (UK) and Tsoku Maela (South Africa), developed in partnership with Unlimited. 

Thanks to the generous support of Wellcome Trust all films in The Exchange programme can be accessed free of charge.
