Four Corners is a creative centre for film and photography, committed to promoting community-wide participation for over 40 years.
It supports projects that engage with social and cultural themes, and opens up perspectives for local and national audiences. Programmes include the London Creative Network, which works with London-based photographers to develop their practice through workshops, mentoring and exhibition opportunities.
Since 1978 Four Corners has been based on Roman Road, next door to affiliated organisation Camerawork. When Camerawork closed in 2000, Four Corners extended its remit to cover photography, with a successful tender to the Arts Council to run the photographic resource.
In 2016 Four Corners received Heritage Lottery funding to undertake a major archive project exploring Four Corners’ early work within independent filmmaking and Camerawork’s unique contribution to photography in the 1970s and 80s, to make this important history widely accessible for the first time.
Four Corners Archive project culminated on the 14 June 2018 with the launch of a digital archive, fourcornersarchive.org, alongside the exhibition Radical Visions: the early history of Four Corners and Camerawork 1972 – 1985.
