The Resonate Festival : And (M)other Stories

Fri 18 March 2022

This textile based workshop brings together women from all over the world to tell their stories (not normally heard in public spaces) about their mother, grandmother, aunt and wider family. who may have been part of activist movements for equality and social justice in either in their country of origin or in Britain.

In the course of the workshop, the collaboratively created piece will represent these stories in material form using fabrics. Get involved…

· construct a piece of history which informs and educates others

· construct a piece of history from which they can draw inspiration to take action for social change today.

The created piece of art which will be digitally recorded and also form a live exhibit to be shown online and at Warwick University during the campus festival, Resonate 2022.

Lunch and coffee/tea/juice will be provided throughout the day. We would love for people to drop in in the morning and have lunch before they leave or come in for lunch and then stay as long as they can in the afternoon.

A unique opportunity for the struggles of women from racially minoritised communities to make a place for themselves and their family in British society in a workshop that provides an important space for amplifying their voices, telling their stories and inspiring political and civic action now and in future.




The event will start at 10am
