Remembering Who We Are, at Ante



To help celebrate and reclaim May Day, Melanie Maddison and Lindsay Starbuck will display an exhibition of work by various artists commemorating labour and workers’ movements, actions, and struggles. Included will be a selection of work from Shape and Situate: Posters of Inspirational European Women, the Celebrate People’s History poster project, the Occuprint portfolio as well as two tapestries in homage to historical trade union banners ,and photographs.

The historical and commemorative art work will remind us how far we’ve come in the fight for employment rights and the work looking at contemporary issues can reassure us that despite the changes in the way workers are represented and able to organise, we are neither alone nor helpless to create change. We hope that both will inspire us in the struggles that we still face this May Day.
