It’s not for you we did it

It’s not for you we did it began through an interest in the work of Derry Film and Video Workshop. Established in Derry in 1983 and operating until 1989, this feminist, anti-imperialist film collective produced a number of films including Stop Strip Searching, Planning, Mother Ireland and Hush-a-Bye Baby as well as enacting various forms of community cultural education. It’s not for you we did it took the form of dossiers of interviews/texts, images and posters produced and assembled by curator Sara Greavu and artist Ciara Phillips. It was presented on EVA International’s Little did they know online platform. These dossiers document the process of researching Derry Film and Video Workshop with former members of the collective and the broader community, mapping the complex web of relationships and conditions that fostered its formation. The five posters in this collection, designed by Ciara Phillips using photographs from the community photography project, Camerawork Derry which was active around the same time as Derry Film and Video Workshop.
