Tape Collective

T A P E was founded in 2015 by Angela Moneke and Isra Al Kassi after meeting through the Barbican Young Programmers scheme. T A P E launched as a response to the lack of representation on screen; wanting to platform and highlight the sheer variety of under-served films out there.

Over the years T A P E has curated a number of well-rounded screenings bringing together film, art, music, talks and more into one space and events with a focus on representation, identity and heritage; bringing exciting screenings to new audiences, championing the forgotten could-be cult films of the festival circuit with a focus on programmes of women of colour both behind and in front of the camera.

Since launching with a 1929 release public domain film in a community café in 2016, T A P E has expanded to include:

  • commissioning content writing;

  • Q&A and panel hosting;

  • consultation on equity, diversity and inclusion;

  • festival guest curation;

  • production;

  • distribution;

  • venue dressing;

  • developing and producing workshops;

  • cross-arts events;

  • online streaming platform Good Wickedry.
