Join artist Ruby Wright for her Guerrilla Girls-inspired lino print workshop. Sit with Miss Pokeno at her Too Ugly for Words table, hear poetry by Barbican Young Poets collective, Men Are Trash. Interact with curator, Sessa Omoregie whose Camgirls research project explores the use of selfies as art via the iconic renaissance painting, The Birth of Venus. Join artist Bukola Thompson who will lead drawing sessions of Muslim women to reclaim the nuanced narratives of Muslim women growing up in Britain. Create explosive art with the Sisters of Perpetual Resistance. The programme will include a live Stance podcast recording chaired by Stance and friends, showcasing cultural innovators producing more representative narratives, with more to be announced.
