What's Art Got to Do With It?


Taking Palestinian artist Laila Shawa's Disposable Bodies No.3 (pictured) as a trigger, guest speakers will offer insights into contemporary gender issues creating a collective portrait of women today. How conflicted will these multiple perspectives be? Do we really need a Women's History Month anyway? Explore the politics of motherhood, conflict, careers and disability with poet Dr. Benjamin Zephaniah (When I Grow Up, Talking Turkeys), actor Zawe Ashton (Dreams of a Life, Fresh Meat), Tulip Siddiq (Camden Councillor), artist collective DARTER (currently exhibiting at Whitechapel Gallery) as well as Laila Shawa herself! Along with lively discussion and debate, there will be a film screening by a local young women's group, in response to being a young woman in London. There will also be a live performance by dub duo The YuYa
