You are invited to take part in Double Dabble: A Feminist Day of Making!

Double Dabble is a workshop attempting to bridge feminist theory and practice through the practice of making on the 4th of February 2017 at the Shipley Art Gallery in Gateshead.

The aim of the event is to create a selection of interactive dabble stations addressing various of creative activities and feminist theories. Together we will build a collaborative space to engage in discussion and making.

We are looking for participants and hosts.

Participants can register at this link: doubledabble.eventbrite.co.uk

We are also looking for dedicated hosts who can bring along knowledges around either feminist theories and/or (creative) practice. For example: historic, cultural, economic, philosophical, or social perspective of feminisms OR zine makers, artists, poets, musicians, makers, hobby-tinkerers, crafters, or circuitry-wizards.

Before the event, we will be teaming up a ‘theorist’ and a ‘practitioner’ to host a stall together on the day. We will introduce you to each other in an e-mail and ask each theorist to prepare a few thinking points for participants to explore and each practitioner to prepare a short activity for participants to take part in.

If you would like to be involved, please send us an e-mail to let us know (either to Angelika a.strohmayer@ncl.ac.uk or to Janis J.L.Meissner2@newcastle.ac.uk) and we will then start to work out the details. 

We are very much looking forward to hearing about you and your skills as we think that your collaboration on this event is what will ultimately make it special!

Thank you,

Angelika, Janis, Emma, Ko-Le, Helen, Tag, and the rest of fempower.tech

 

This event is a collaboration between fempower.tech and the Shipley Art Gallery and is funded by the Feminist and Women’s Studies Association (FWSA), the Digital Economy Network (DEN), Open Lab, and the Centre For Doctoral Training in Digital Civics.
