Join artist researcher Yvonne Billimore in a two-day exploration of the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp collection from our archive. Together we will draw out and layer the personal narratives, experiences, speculations, knowledges and gossip we find to acknowledge the complexity of Greenham Common. If you’re interested in eco-feminist thought and collective research practices come along to consider the continued relevance of this movement for multiple struggles, past, present and future.
Re-reading Greenham Common, Tuesdays 26th November and 3rd December, 10am to 4pm, £5/£3, 16+
Re-reading Greenham Common is a study group which favours experimenting with non-linear narratives and co-learning processes. The group will spend time working together directly with the materiality of the archive, cross referencing and intersecting it with their own work and interests, as well as those of other participants. The aim of the group is to practice processes of collective exchange, contamination and entanglement to disrupt dominant and singular narratives, inside and outside of the archive.
“We are transformed, individually, collectively, as we make radical creative space which affirms and sustains our subjectivity, which gives us a new location from which to articulate our sense of the world.” – bell hooks, Choosing the Margin as a Space for Radical Openness
