“We want to change the way people see and imagine their city. We want to transform people's perception of the city's massive informal areas”, says Michael Uwemedimo, co-founder of Cmap, filmmaker and project director of the Human City Project in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. In this lecture Michael will explain what happens across Port Harcourt's informal settlements and how co-creation skills and technologies allow communities to record their experiences, tell their stories and change their lives.
Michael is Lecturer in Film at University of Roehampton and visiting Senior Research Fellow at King’s College London. Michael was a founding member of the filmmaking collective Vision Machine and producer of Oscar-nominated, BAFTA-winning, The Act of Killing. Michael lives and works in Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
Michael is a co-founding partner of CMAP.
