Anyone can take our workshops. Get more involved through community n/n, our lab subscription programme.
A community n/n subscription supports the work that we do at not/nowhere by helping us to maintain the lab and support new programmes. not/nowhere's subscription is open to anyone who wants to get involved. We are particularly invested in artists of colour being able to access analogue moving image practices and we want to bring anyone and everyone together to create, curate and respond to moving image practices.
Why not give a subscription as a gift for your filmmaker friend?
Not only does it support us as a community, but a subscription also facilitates its holder to rent our equipment (detailed below), see our facilities, attend (or receive- by email/post!) programming.

Community n/n subscribers can become voting members of the cooperative once they meet the requirements of membership.
An artist or freelance cultural worker can become a director-member of not/nowhere only by unanimous vote into the cooperative by current members AND by having completed 200 hours of work with the cooperative.
If joining the cooperative to fulfill a film lab-related role (16mm, 8mm, etc), these 200 hours must include at least 2 workshops, but there is no lower limit to how many worked hours need to have been from workshops. For example - if a person has worked 200 hours with the cooperative, including two workshops of 1 hour and 198 admin hours, that person is eligible for membership.
We do not currently have available work but those interested in working with the cooperative should Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you skills you would like to share with us.
