Feminist Futures Creative Writing Workshop

  • This event has passed.

When: Sunday 02 September

Time: 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Location: The Event Space


People of all genders aged 16-30 are invited to a free, interactive creative writing workshop exploring the future of gender equality and activism. Held within an exhibition of striking feminist posters, the workshop will take inspiration from a century of women-led campaigns for gender equality from Votes for Women to Equal Pay and #metoo.

Experimenting with DIY counter-cultural methods such as cut-up poetry, adaptation and collage we will explore a range of topics including gender stereotyping, sexual harassment, LGBT+ activism and the issues that matter to you.

The workshop will create opportunities to:
Meet others interested in activism, creative writing and gender equality
Experiment with new creative writing techniques in a non-judgmental environment
Publish your work on the Feminist Archive South project website and have it displayed in a regional touring exhibition (optional)
Enrich the study of English Literature and Language at A-Level or degree level and build your knowledge of feminist theory, textual analysis and adaptation

‘Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.’ Audre Lorde, ‘Poetry is not a Luxury’.

After the workshop there will be a launch for the exhibition with free food, refreshments, discussions and a badge, zine and poster making workshop open to everyone. You are welcome to stay and continue your creative writing work in the space. If you would like to join the workshop please register for your free ticket on Eventbrite.

The Red Brick Building is wheelchair accessible. If you have any questions or access needs get in touch with Ellie at [email protected].
