CREATE/feminisms: a symposium

 

Tuesday 22 July 2014, 9.30am-9.00pm
School of Art & Design, The Grove, Middlesex University, London NW4 4BT
 
 

What is the position of feminism in the Art & Design school today? What is current feminist thinking and how does it contribute to, challenge and expand the teaching, research and institutional environment of art schools? There is a much-noted 'resurgence' of feminism but (how) is that becoming visible and active amongst students and staff?

These are some of the questions to be explored in this one-day event, organised by the CREATE/feminisms research cluster of the School of Art and Design, Middlesex University. Rather than formal presentations, the symposium consisted of a series of themed workshops to maximise audience participation and encourage discussion.

Workshops are led by:

Sonia Boyce / Anne Burke / Katy Deepwell / Emma Dick & Maeve O'Loughlin / Catherine Dormor / Rebecca Fortnum / Alexandra Kokoli / Lorraine Leeson / susan pui san lok & Juliette Kristensen / Neelam Raina / Hilary Robinson / Amanda Sleet / Suzanne van Rossenberg & Elina Suoyrjö

The symposium closed with a screening of Lives of artists, not wives of artists (1984), by Sue Aron, Monika Moravietz & Rowena Rowling, introduced by Felicity Allen, one of the five artists participating in the film.

A report on the symposium is available here.
