Event description

Description

Go beyond a ‘selfie’ in this self-portrait workshop with Alex Nelson, photographer and manager at the Susan Meiselas studio. Participants will make a self-portrait using photography and expand upon the basic image using collage, writing and drawing to represent their many selves.

8 places avaliabile - book now to avoid disappointment.

During 2015 and 2016, arts organisation, Multistory, and Magnum photographer, Susan Meiselas, collaborated with women who were living in a Black Country refuge. The resulting publication, A Room of Their Own, shares the women’s experiences of domestic abuse and the process of entering refuge using photographs, first hand testimonies and original artworks.

To mark International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November 2017, and the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence (25 Nov – 10 Oct) we have teamed up again to develop a series of unique ‘pop-up’ exhibitions, events, workshops and talks. Together with our Black Country partners, we hope to raise the issue of domestic violence, inspire activism and encourage people to purchase A Room of Their Own, proceeds of which will go to women in refuge in the Black Country.
