Art as Activism

Activity: EventsWorkshop


The exhibition follows on from a project that looked at gender-based violence across different spaces, including homes, streets and transport. In opening up different conversations across the globe, artists from the UK and Mexico have produced creative responses (image and text) to stories of gender-based violence that reflected changes in the ways people moved around different spaces since the beginning of the Covid 19 pandemic.

Alongside the exhibition, will be open roundtable discussions that will include the artists taking part in the exhibition and anyone interested in having a conversation about gender-based violence. Anyone can join these discussions, which take place on Tuesday 14 November 12.30-1, Wednesday 15 November 11.30-12.30, Thursday 16 November 1-2, Friday 17 November 11.30-12.30

In addition, we will be holding creative workshops with activities inspired by the exhibit; the responses and work generated will inform research findings that seek to raise awareness and contribute to discussions into how the arts can promote social change relating to gender-based violence.
