Event — Making Do at The Old Lookout Gallery

Making Do · Process 3 · March 2011

Mak­ing Do will spend the next two week­ends at The Old Lookout Gal­lery cre­at­ing and pro­du­cing a pub­lic­a­tion in col­lab­or­a­tion with the com­munity at Broad­stairs…

Fol­low­ing from our latest issue, Dia­logues form out of this world, we aim to fur­ther explore the lim­its of author­ship (shared, open source) and the res­ults of col­lect­ive pro­cesses with­in cre­at­ive pro­duc­tion.

Mak­ing Do will relo­cate at The Old Lookout Gal­lery to pro­duce a pub­lic­a­tion in col­lab­or­a­tion with, the invited mem­bers of the com­munity as well as pass­er bys and vis­it­ors to the gal­lery space.

We are invit­ing the com­munity of Broad­stairs to par­ti­cip­ate in the con­tent and pro­duc­tion of this pub­lic­a­tion: ideas on con­tent, art­icles, pho­to­graphs, per­son­al and col­lect­ive his­tor­ies, news, illus­tra­tions as well as act­ive pro­duc­tion dur­ing the mak­ing i.e. edit­ing, design, lay­out etc.

All the edit­or­i­al pro­cesses and decisions will be con­stantly dis­played in the gal­lery space. It will be an open office where vis­it­ors can come and have a chat, par­ti­cip­ate in group dis­cus­sions, bring their stor­ies and points of view.

This is an oppor­tun­ity to expose the usu­ally hid­den pro­cesses of cre­at­ing a pub­lic­a­tion while at the same time chal­lenge them by open­ing them up to col­lab­or­a­tions.”

A lib­rary of inde­pend­ent pub­lic­a­tions as well as books on loc­al his­tory will be on dis­play dur­ing the pro­cess.
