COALFACE is also a laboratory for visual projects and experiments. We work together with professional photographers who are active in mining regions during long periods of time. We’re there to show a little of their vast amount of work.
Also active in our ‘lab’ are youths and local target groups. Youths, future policy makers and ‘consumers’ of the mining heritage, develop certain interesting trains of thought. In workshops they voice their own opinions or take up the position behind the camera. Special attention goes to the multicultural environment. Both immigrants and natives share the same heritage. Discovering and exploring our common heritage strengthens a positive view people of different cultures have of each other.
