Delighted to present a talk on the subject of Arts & Wellbeing Practice at the Maker’s Fair held in the DIY Space for London, Sunday 12th May.

There will also be a zine making workshop presented by Lu Williams, a ‘Being an entrepreneur Artist and Maker in London’ talk by Tere Chad, plus makers stalls selling zines, illustrations, prints, ceramics, jewellery, and more.

The DIY Space For London is a cooperatively-run social centre located in South London, just off Old Kent Road, who offer low cost creative facilities, meeting rooms and social spaces, as well as space for screenings, talks and performances. DIY for London operates via a members’ club model so that everyone has an equal say in how the place is run. The space works to promote the ideas of mutual aid (helping each other) and cooperation (working together). Providing a welcoming space for everyone, including those whose voices and contributions are not always heard or appreciated.

I am pleased to announce that my Artist’s Book entitled ‘Sequence’ has been acquired by the Women’s Art Library, Special Collections at Goldsmiths University, London.

The Women’s Art Library began as an artists’ initiative that developed into an arts organization publishing catalogues and books as well as a magazine from the early 1980s to 2002. The main purpose however was to provide a place for women artists to deposit unique documentation of their work. WAL collected personal files that functioned together as an alternative public space to view and experience women’s art. Thousands of artists from around the world are represented in some form in this collection.

As part of Goldsmiths Library Special Collections, the Women’s Art Library continues to collect slides, artist’s books, artist statements, exhibition ephemera, catalogues and press material in addition to audio and videotapes, photographs and CD-Roms.
