Saturday, 23 April, from 13–16: A moment up close
How do things look up close? In this workshop, you’ll make a short video on that idea. We’ll explore the short films of artist Samson Kambalu and use them as inspiration for creating a video with a sense of approach and closeness. You can use your own phone or tablet, or you can borrow a tablet from Kiasma.
Medium: short video
Saturday, 30 April, from 13–16: Three-minute encounter
Capture the moment – and make it different! We will film short videos and edit them in the spirit of artist Samson Kambalu. What happens when you slow down the video? Or if you turn the end into the beginning? You can use your own phone or tablet to make the video, or you can borrow a tablet from Kiasma.
Medium: short video
Saturday, 24 September, from 13–16: Shared story

Do you ever feel like “making a scene”? In this workshop, you get to set a scene using all kinds of props. When your composition is ready, you can take a photo and share with others, if you wish. You can use your own phone or tablet to take the photo, or you can borrow a tablet from Kiasma.
