Workshop Declaration

Workshop Declaration
   An agreement between the ACTT (Association of Cinematograph, Television and Allied Technicians) union, the British Film Institute (BFI) and Channel 4. The Declaration recognized a number of ‘franchised workshops’ for the production of work commissioned by Channel 4 at sub-normal rates with smaller crews. The aim of the Declaration was to stimulate the creation of community workshops based on race and gender as well as region. Partly as a consequence, black workshops such as Sankofa, Ceddo and Black Audio Film Collective were established in the mid-1980s. Women’s workshops in Leeds and Sheffield were also franchised, as well as regional ones in Cardiff, Birmingham and the East Midlands.
