A Life in Activism

A Life in Activism

By Tracey Dunn

I was 1 of 18 women being interviewed for their activism for Women In Action by Collective Encounters. Our stories were turned into a performance (and online event) at Liverpool Museum for Women’s Day 2022. Mine and the other women’s links are here to listen to – audio.maydayrooms.org

I have been an activist for most of my life..focusing more recently on environmental activism. I usually make very short films and take photos and I sometimes collaborate with others to make longer films.

In the past I have made a film to protest homophobia, I made the first ever film on protesting the bedroom tax as Liverpool got active immediately it was announced and I made a film of the G20 Climate Camp in Bishopsgate, London.

I was filmed cutting up my census in 2011 and turned it into flowers for peace at FACT Liverpool and I have filmed and photographed Extinction Rebellion events in London and Liverpool and the Liverpool Youth Climate Strike marches.

I have most of my films archived In the North West Film Archives Manchester and will be archiving my photos in Liverpool Central library shortly.

Taking time out to illuminate the great and minutae the personal and political the ever-changing universal struggle for change. More power to your camera lens. Stay safe health is wealth. Solidarity.
