fem ad lib, the wall/space event on Sunday 1 March 2008, from 2pm to 6pm.
It is a half-day event - we originally planned a full day but our funding applications were not accepted. We are lucky to be sponsored by Imece, the Turkish-speaking women's association in North London – see note 1.
The structure for the event will be: short introductory presentations by a range of practising women/feminist artists, leading to a general discussion about the issues raised by their work, what feminist art is or could be, and what it means to be a feminist artist. There will be a session in which you can share and discuss your own art work – please bring in images of your work if it's not possible to bring in the actual work. Finally there will be a short discussion about the feminist art exhibition we are holding in June 2009.
Numbers for this event are limited and we are asking you to book a place as soon as possible. We are also asking you for donations to help cover the costs of the event – either £6 or £4, depending on your income. If you can send in your donations when you make your booking, that would be really helpful. Please make cheques payable to wallspace and send to 31 Shacklewell Road London N16 7TW.
The venue is Oxford House, Derbyshire Street London E2 – see their website at: www.oxfordhouse.org.uk for details of access etc. If you need a signer or childcare, please let us know. If you have any further questions, please email us.
Best wishes, Banu, Caroline, Helen and Itziar for wall/space.
