As we are nearing closer to bidding farewell to our beloved Camden Centre, this month we are also saying goodbye to some of our long-standing events!
‘Queer’ Asia is a network of queer identifying scholars, academics, activists, artists and performers. It is a platform for inter-Asia collaboration, dialogue and research on issues affecting people who self-identify as LGBTQ+ or belong to other non-normative sexualities and gender identities in Asia, or Asian diasporas and beyond.
Taking the Women’s Suffrage movement as a point of departure, Camden VOX has commissioned four artists to produce a series of posters that explore ideas of equality, place, power and identity. Featuring works by Sutapa Biswas, Claudette Johnson, Ingrid Pollard and Hannah Collins and exhibited in the atrium at Swiss Cottage Library from June 2018 to January 2019. August - September: Sutapa Biswas.
In collaboration with Camden Giving, Camden Council’s official celebration of International Women’s Day 2018 will take place on Thursday 8th March. The morning event will take the format of a speed networking event which will provide an opportunity for young Camden women (aged between 14 and 16) to network with women who have successful careers and either live or work in the borough.
Exploring the contribution of suffrage activists based in Camden to the campaign for the right to vote, this exhibition sets its history in the larger context of the struggle for women’s rights.
This year’s gallery programme asks: What does it mean to have a voice, and what does it mean to speak? How can we question legacies of equality, history, place and power when thinking about social, cultural and physical visibility?
Tell the story of our time and add the pages to projectVOX, a zine by and for the people of Camden exploring POWER, EQUALITY, HISTORY and PLACE. As part of Camden VOX, Quiet Down There calls Camden’s communities to tell their story and leave their mark on the pages of a zine revealing what it means to live in a democracy in 2018. Click here
Camden Council, partners and residents are today celebrating after the borough won funding to deliver cultural augmented reality trails around Camden, as part of the Mayor of London's 'London Borough of Culture' competition.
This month we spoke to painter Elizabeth McCarten, tutor for the Royal Drawing School's Young Artist Programme and winner of the Jackson Art Prize. She regularly takes her students out to paint on Hampstead Heath and has lived in Camden most of her life.
