Event description

Description

As part of our groundbreaking exhibition of feminist art, we are offering workshops that teach skills while creating meaningful art pieces.


10 December 2016

10am-1pm: Visitors are invited to leave their mark on an historic new artwork that will commemorate the establishment of our charity, FiLia. Brighton-based SmallHillArts will be creating a contemporary suffragette banner using heirloom button collections. (Downstairs Gallery area, Oxford House)

2pm: Community sewing group Significant Seams will be running a make-your-own fabulous feminist washbag workshop. (Room B9)

About the show

FiLiArt:Refuge is an exhibition that comes at a critical time. Now more than ever, we must stand up for the values of equality, diversity and solidarity across social divides. At FiLia, we believe that art is a powerful way to bring people together, speaking a shared universal language.

FiLiArt:Refuge explores the boundaries of safety and vulnerability in women’s lives, from the hopes and dreams of Syrian refugee girls, to the devastating impacts of abuse, to the transformative space of sisterhood. Experience vibrant, exciting work from more than 30 women artists, in all types of media, from sculpture and textiles to digital, film and photography.
