One Billion Rising events took place between 2-14 February globally this week. If you haven’t seen this short film, then I urge you to watch it as it raises awareness of forms of violence against women and urges us to Strike Dance and Rise.
*Trigger Warning* A film by @EveEnsler and Tony Stroebel.
To celebrate International Womens’ Day (8 March), I will be hosting and chairing an all-day Saturday session Women in Photography in Brighton on Saturday 2 March at The Green Door with Miniclicks Photo Talks and Firecracker.
“The day will kickoff at 11am with an introduction from our host for the day, deputy editor of Hotshoe magazine, Miranda Gavin. Following on from Miranda, founder of Firecracker, Fiona Rogers has curated a series of photographers her organisation has worked with in the last year.
“They include Firecracker 2012 grant winner Jo Metson Scott, Abbie Traylor Smith, Maria Gruzdeva, Agata Pietron and Chloe Dewe Matthews. All will present short talks on their work.”
