INVITE to FEMINIST FUSION | MEMORIA 2020 - VISUAL ART EXHIBITION LAUNCH
SATURDAY 8th MAY, 7pm ONLINE EVENT - Facebook Live Streaming + Zoom
The MEMORIA project has arrived at its final steps, which includes this visual art exhibition made by women, followed by a theatre play made by young people in early July. After a public call-out four female local artists have been selected for the MEMORIA 2020 Exhibition. Each artist is creating work in response to this project and the Mayflower’s 400th centenary, working on pieces over a period of two weeks, with regular interaction, exploring history, intersectionality, colonialism and the ongoing effects in our own time.
We will continue exploring new ways of thinking and walking together, considering how we are going to move forward as a local and global community, accompanied by the vision of these wonderful women artists. Join us!
