For Who Are We? Marcia has been commissioned to produce films exploring the artistic processes of three of the featured projects and over the week will be working with the OU project A Stitch in Time… to produce a visual response to both the installation of emerging conversations around language and a research document.
Marcia Chandra is a visual storyteller working around themes of migration, place and urban environments. Informed by political ecology, visual ethnography and participatory methods, her approach is to construct narratives through observation and collaborative reflection. Marcia has recently spent a year filming the Open University’s PASAR project, a participatory theatre and walking project with migrant mothers. Marcia is also co-producing, with Counterpoints Arts, the participatory arts and neighbourhood storytelling projects, Everyday on Canalside and Clapham Park Creative Co-op. A forthcoming project with Counterpoints Arts is Refuge City set in London, Athens and Berlin in collaboration with the LSE Resilient Cities Programme.
Marcia works with NGOs, communities and research organisations in the UK and internationally as a photographer, filmmaker, and visual projects producer.
