Between September 2014 and December 2015, every first Thursday of the month we turned our Hackney studio into a small digital art gallery, showcasing new, experimental work by artists we were working with. This was a joint venture with Foteini Galanopoulou, filmpro lates Curator / Co-producer.
These events were an opportunity to proudly present the range of amazing artwork we helped materialise, and introduce people to the growing network of filmpro Associate Artists and beyond.
We used filmpro lates as a platform to encourage and support the artists to develop accessibility as an integral part of how they create and present their artistic product to audiences.
filmpro lates were part of the Whitechapel Gallery’s ‘First Thursdays’ scheme
