Fellowship Square,

Waltham Forest Town Hall

Praise Dancer, 2022; Angela Russell

Mini Lit Fest and Pop Up Exhibition

11am-1pm / All Day

We are honoured to host some of the collection from The Feminist Library for your perusal. There will be a comfortable place to ensconce yourself in these excellent women’s writings.

Pop Up Exhibition

We present work by artists Angela Russell, Eliza Żmuda, Xiaoyu Wang, Jamie-Lee Culver, Wuchao Feng who all interrogate through their work issues around cultural heritage, spiritual practices, gender identity and barriers caused by stereotypical notions of motherhood in society.

Workshop 2-4pm

This conversational workshop will be split into three parts which will draw on each other to create various responses to our theme of identity, equality and diversity. As an organisation that exists to help marginalised voices be heard we invite you to come and find a way of expressing your story through this interactive art workshop. We will spend some time thinking about, and using, our bodies through writing, performance and photography.

You will be led in three small groups with a set of prompts that respond to the following topics: Image – Text  Text – Body  Body – Image. Afterwards, the work can be uploaded for an online exhibition to be showcased on our website shespeaksup.org.

The workshop is free and all materials will be provided. It would be helpful to have an idea of numbers. Please sign up via the eventbright link below – we have 15 places available.

Performance by the fountains

Fellowship Square, Summer 2022

Thanks to Waltham Forest Council we were funded to run free art workshops for the community and host a pop up exhibition with the resulting work. We have had artists Adriana Jaros, Liz Murray and Sharon Young lead with fabric collage, writing and photography. This summer we have been given the opportunity to run these workshops again on 8th May, 2023.
