WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN US: This is your chance to see this fantastic exhibition showcasing posters from GWL’s collection with an introduction and walk-through by curator Kirsty McBride!

This exhibition spotlights some of the highlights of the poster collection at GWL. The exhibition includes some of the cut and paste works created to spread the word about GWL in its infancy, posters raising awareness of women’s issues at home and internationally, works that promote women in the arts, and campaigning flyers for social and political change. All demonstrate how the poster format has and continues to be important to women, women’s groups, and GWL.

The exhibition has been curated and designed by GWL’s first Designer in Residence, Kirsty McBride.

You are, as always, very welcome to have a cuppa on us and a chat after we see the exhibition!
