The Feminist Archive South presents
Free ‘Art and Activism’ Workshop
Saturday 1st December 1-3pm

Meet at The Box Community Hub Space, Fifth Floor, House of Fraser, Plymouth. The workshop will be held in House of Fraser's Boardroom, but we will meet in The Box Community Hub Space on the fifth floor.

This free workshop will draw on the Feminist Archive’s exhibition of over 60 striking posters from the Women’s Liberation Movement which will set the stage for a creative feminist poster and zine making workshop.

Taking inspiration from DIY counter-cultural media, you will have the opportunity to make your own poster or zine by collaging and reworking powerful texts and images from the Feminist Archive South. The workshop aims to create a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere to discuss feminist activism and the future of gender equality whilst being creative.

People of all genders and abilities are welcome. This workshop is free but as places are limited so please register.

The exhibition and workshop space are wheelchair accessible but if you have any questions or access needs please get in touch with Ellie at education.feministarchive@gmail.com.
