Programme

26 Nov – 6 Dec, 14:00 – 18:00 [closed Mondays and Tuesdays] : The Other
A multidisciplinary group exhibition exploring the idea of The Other, featuring work by Goldsmiths students and alumni. Film, installation, photography, collage, audio, performance and sculpture.

3 Dec, 14:00 : LET’S START A PUSSY RIOT
Let’s Start a Pussy Riot is a creative response founded by a collective of collectives, whose aim was to bring together voices from the arts in support of Pussy Riot. The brilliant book “Let’s Start a Pussy Riot” was published in June 2013 by Rough Trade Records. We’re so pleased to have editor Jade French and contributing artist Nastasia Alberti join us for a discussion on artistic activism and their latest project 100 Days Of Activism.

3 Dec, 16:00 : How To Write A Proposal
Artists! Join Jenna Mason, curator and director of Carousel for a workshop on how to write submissions for open calls. Find out what curators look for and hear Jenna’s top tips for getting your creative work picked for group exhibitions. Free and open to all Goldsmiths students and alumni.

3 Dec, 17:30 : How To Write A Press Release
We’re super lucky to have Louisa Bee, Press Officer at Dulwich Picture Gallery, who will lead a workshop on how to format, target and present a press release – essential skills for anyone promoting their work or project. Free and open to Goldsmiths students and alumni.

5 Dec, 15:00 : I Have a Story To Tell by Open Book
Join us for a preview of an upcoming public performance by Open Book. The aim of the project is to build bridges between people – between students, participants from Open Book and strangers in the street. Everyone has a story to tell and by telling it, we connect to each other. The focus is not on what separates us, rather on what unifies us as people. Open Book is a project that encourages socially excluded groups to take up education.

6 Dec, 18:30 : Closing Party : Featuring DJ set by Michelle Ulor and performance by Nicola Pope.

We were proud to take part in the inaugural edition of Wowzers Festival, a community-led feminist arts and music festival, running in parallel with the Southbank Centre’s Women of the World festival on 8th-9th March [you’re right, that is International Women’s Day!] Together with our musical friends at the girls are, we were tasked with organising fun times on the Saturday night.

Facebook event here

There was a whole host of inspirational activities taking place over the weekend, including workshops, interactive talks, musical performances, art exhibitions and late-night DJs. It was truly be a space where all corners of feminism met to advance issues and nurture up-and-coming talent, while recognising the intersections with race, class, disability, age and LGBTQ issues.
