‘Women Behind the Lens’

Exploring what it means to be a woman artist today (in a variety of mediums, and through the lens of different cultures). From the trappings of the male gaze, to cultures where the woman artist is still frowned upon, to the empowerment of creativity, we’ll explore multiple times, perspectives and cultures in this interactive workshop celebrating the role of the woman artist.

Fiona will run through a variety of well known (and not so well known) works by women artists (including writers, photographers and other artists). People are invited to discuss the works and learn about how the role of the woman artist has developed over time and in different cultures and where – if appropriate for the individual – women can feel empowered to reconnect with their own creativity and inner artist.
