Location: Hawick
Deadline: 1 September 2018

Are you interested in experimental film? Do you have some free time for volunteering? Do you live near, or can get to, Hawick? Then Alchemy Film & Moving Image Festival would love to hear from you.

Alchemy is delighted to be launching its 2018-19 Exhibition Programme with London-based artist filmmaker Onyeka Igwe’s ‘No Dance, No Palaver’. This is not only a Scottish premiere, but the first time the work is being shown in exhibition, and volunteers are now being sought to help welcome the public and invigilate the show. 

‘No Dance, No Palaver’ is a three-film series produced from Onyeka Igwe’s research into the Aba Women’s War of 1929 - read more about the exhibition here.

Alchemy will be holding a Volunteer Preview of the work on Thursday 9 August at 6.30pm in the Hawick Film and Video Group cinema on Croft Road, Hawick. This will give volunteers a real sense of Onyeka’s work, and for anyone who hasn’t yet seen this charming little cinema, it's a real treat! Light refreshments will also be available and volunteers are encouraged to bring a friend.
If you can't make the preview, Alchemy is still keen to hear from you. There’s also an opportunity to meet Onyeka at a public preview and artist talk on Wednesday 5 September, 6.30pm. 

The exhibition itself will run in Hawick at Unit Four: The Cornucopia Room, from Thursday 6 September to Wednesday 19 September.

Volunteers will invigilate the space in 3 or 3.5 hour shifts throughout its run. Opening hours of the exhibition are Wednesday to Saturday, 11am to 6pm, and Sunday 12pm to 3pm.
