This discussion is part of the exhibition 'The Suffragettes : Millennial Rebls' which runs from 16th - 23rd March 2018 at Islington Arts Factory. The unique series of Wet Plate Collodion photography and specially designed and crafted hats and millinery celebrates the centenary of the Representation of the People Act 1918, the Act which granted some women over 30 the vote in the UK. This was the first time women had voted in the UK.
Information about the venue:
Islington Arts Factory is a converted church building opposite the entrance to HM Holloway Prison, the prison where the Suffragettes were imprisoned in the early 20th century. It provides over fifty educational courses in art, dance and music for children and adult learners. Islington Arts Factory believes that creativity should be undertaken for its own sake and that active involvement in the arts encourages positive personal growth throughout life and fosters social cohesion.
There is no miniumum age requirement for the event. It is not easy to park around the venue and public transport is recommended. Islington Arts Factory is a 10 minute walk from Caledonian or Holloway tube stations. If coming by bus you can take the 4, 17, 29, 43, 91, 153, 253, 259, 271, 279, 359. If you are a wheel chair user or have any other access building requirements please get in touch. The exhibition is on the ground floor of Islington Arts Factory but it would be great to know to expect you so that we can make sure that the building is easy to access.
