18-21 October 2018, with Amy Sharrocks, Clare Qualmann and Madeleine Hodge - DAYLIGHTING at Wellcome Trust. OUR MANIFESTO HAS BEEN TYPESET! "Daylighting is a four-day programme of events, some of which you can book in advance and others that you can just show up and enjoy. Throughout the programme, we will explore the interconnections of art, activism, performance, politics, health and print, with a live printing workshop, discussions, readings and collective writing. All the events will consider how we can challenge existing archives and systems of knowledge, change narratives and amplify new voices. At Daylighting's core is the production of DAYLIGHT, a collaborative artwork in the form of a newspaper that explores the presence of women through their art, thinking and speculations.We are open to all. Everyone is welcome at this event, including trans, non-binary, queer, intersex and gender non-conforming people.
