@HyperHyperPhoto here on an #OEGtakeover for the week, taking you through some of the photos being exhibited as part of Open 3: Affecting Change. All images have been produced in collaboration with community group Between The Borders. Between the Borders as an active collective communicates asylum seeker and migrant experiences through long term community projects; creative and music events, exhibitions, film screenings and workshops. I became involved with Between the Borders after attending parties that were thrown by contributors of the zine at an inhabited former bakery which was regularly full of people dancing well into the morning; everything from Salsa and Afrobeat to Soul and Disco classics. You could find people watching short films, documentaries and shows in one room and dancing in the next, upstairs sometimes people talking, eating, playing chess and on more than one occasion napping. The parties were intended to fundraise for Asylum Link Merseyside and Calais Migrant Solidarity Fund and provide a safe space for a diverse group of people to come together and to create a community. These images were taken over the past few years at the parties. #affectingchange #openeyegallery#nononeisillegal #35mm #filmphotography #BetweentheBorders #liverpool
