THE FIRST CASUALTY OF WAR IS THE TRUTH

An exhibition of contemporary artworks by re:collect artists; Julie Edwards, Jill Impey, Jacqui Dodds, Elizabeth Turner, Ann Kelcey and Keith Ashford forms part of Shopshire’s Wilfred Owen 100 programme of events. 

The exhibition attempts to break down some of the spin and propaganda around how the First World War was and still is represented in the media.  The artworks aim to expose truths obscured by time, loss and misinformation and respond to the notion "the first casualty of war is truth".

ADVENTURES IN ALTERNATIVE CINEMA

MediaActive will be in residence at Theatre Severn and Old Market Hall, curating and producing a series of  screenings, events and moving image productions, both on site and offsite at various locations across Shropshire.

The residency will explore the relationship between moving image and the performing arts, between animation, filmmaking and archive film exhibition.

If you are interested in getting involved as a curator, filmmaker, animator, or performer, please contact richard@mediaactive.org

From September to November, to launch the Adventures programme, animators will take up residence at Theatre Severn, as part of ANIM18, the UK wide festival of British Animation.
