Visit to Hackney Museum
There was amazing and inspiring work exhibited that feels so relevant still today. Some of our favourites included:
A is for ‘Ackney (1970s), an alphabet book created by a group at the workshop to help with adult English literacy.
Towards Tomorrow (1988), an excerpt from a calendar produced as a project to encourage local women to screen print. November, created by Ruth Burgess, was inspired by a young woman called Tracy, the only female in an all-male garage.
The new misandry (1980), a parody of a breakfast cereal advert; it was intended to poke fun at the man hating caricature of feminists popularised in the media.
