Seeing Things (Together) Weemin’s Wark

26th March at 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm


Our favourite things about seeing a film or an exhibition is chatting about it afterwards, but as this can’t always happen at the moment, we’ve created a space on Zoom where we can see things together and have a chance to share our thoughts afterwards if we want to.

Seeing Things, Friday 26th March, 3pm to 4.30pm, Online, Women only, 16+

Each session will be a virtual “trip” to see or watch something (short films, performances, online exhibitions or music) followed by an informal and open chat facilitated by our Seeing Things volunteers.  These sessions are about exploring women artists together, regardless of how little or how much we know about art.


This time we’ll be exploring artworks created by 4 artists and a writer for an exhibition called Weemin’s Wark, on show at GWL until the end of April (or available as an online exhibition if Covid restrictions mean that GWL is closed).  This exhibition is a response to the ongoing exclusion of women in the Up Helly Aa festival’s torch parade and acts, and reveals a wider gender bias which continues to divide Shetland.

We’ll find out more about some of the artists’ work, explore the context which gave rise to this project, and share some clips from the launch of the exhibition in January 2021.

You can find out more about the exhibition here: https://womenslibrary.org.uk/event/weemins-wark/


Do l understand the art work? Do l like it, love it or just don’t get it?  [With Seeing Things] after
each exhibition or workshop we open up a conversation about it and it has been funny and
insightful how we all see things differently or maybe not. – Previous Seeing Things participant

This is one of our “take part” events this Spring!
