Event description

Description

An informal entertainment/talk with readings, film clips and images by Prof Penny Florence.

Doors open 7pm, ready for a 7.30pm start.

Penny Florence will take us on entertaining, illustrated ramble through the ways in which feminism can save your life, whatever your sex. While this is a personal journey, the evening is not about her autobiography. Rather it aims to explore how new meanings can be invented. On the way, the talk (interruptions welcome) will range across writing, poetry, direct action, playing the drumkit, going busking to Barcelona, consciousness raising, filmmaking and academia, the joys and struggles of the Women's Movement and making a living while making art.

Penny Florence has published numerous books, articles and poetry. She has presented digital poetry at Tate Modern, Tate Britain and internationally and shown films at independent festivals and venues including the Brixton Ritzy, Watershed Bristol, and, way back, Norwich Women's Film Festival. She is Professor Emerita at The Slade School of Fine Art, University College London.

There are 2 ticket types standard, and concession for those who are students, unwaged, etc
