Description

The Suffragettes : Millennial Rebels at Islington Arts Factory - Friday 16th March - Friday 23rd March 2018.

Join fine art Wet Plate Photographer Nicolas Laborie and milliner Claire Strickland for the opening night of 'The Suffragettes : Millennial Rebels', on Friday 16th March 2018. It starts at 7:00pm. We would love to see you there and show you the work we have created!

A unique series of Wet Plate Collodion photography and specially designed and crafted hats and millinery.

Celebrate with us the centenary of the Representation of the People Act 1918, the Act which granted some women over 30 the vote in the UK. This was the first time women had voted in the UK.

Featuring music from The Thursday Project String Quartet

The Thursday Project string quartet hail from South London and they are members of numerous chamber ensembles and orchestras. The quartet’s core members, Jane Howard (Violin), Kitty Warnock (Viola), Laura Livesey (Violin) and Tessa Goodoree (Cello) have been playing together for over twenty years.

Their regular, weekly Thursday night rehearsals, generously hosted by Ian Chown (pianist, co-member of The Thursday Project and founder of the South Circular Orchestra (SCOre)) gave birth to the quartet’s name.

The Thursday Project perform regularly in their local community, and beyond, for community-based and private events. The Thursday Project brings a wide range of music repertoire to the masses to enrich and enhance any public or private occasion.

Information about the venue:

Islington Arts Factory is a converted church building opposite the entrance to HM Holloway Prison, the prison where the Suffragettes were imprisoned in the early 20th century. It provides over fifty educational courses in art, dance and music for children and adult learners. Islington Arts Factory believes that creativity should be undertaken for its own sake and that active involvement in the arts encourages positive personal growth throughout life and fosters social cohesion.

There is no miniumum age requirement for the event. It is not easy to park around the venue and public transport is recommended. Islington Arts Factory is a 10 minute walk from Caledonian or Holloway tube stations. If coming by bus you can take the 4, 17, 29, 43, 91, 153, 253, 259, 271, 279, 359. If you are a wheel chair user or have any other access building requirements please get in touch. The exhibition is on the ground floor of Islington Arts Factory but it would be great to know to expect you so that we can make sure that the building is easy to access.

Got any questions we haven't answered here? Contact Nicolas Laborie on info@nicolaslaborie.com or Claire Strickland on claire@clairestrickland.com.

We look forward to seeing you at the opening and celebrating the centenary!
