Mindful Making

Fri 26 January, 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Venue: Martin Hall Breakout Space

Free / Just turn up

I want a dyke for president. I want a person with aids for president and I want a fag for vice president and I want someone with no health insurance and I want someone who grew up in a place where the earth is so saturated with toxic waste that they didn't have a choice about getting leukemia...

Looking for a break from your regular studies or work on a Friday afternoon? Want to engage with some interesting cultural material in a creative and social way? Join us for our first Mindful Making session! Professor of Feminism, Art and Theory Hilary Robinson will be guiding a discussion about Zoe Leonard's 1992 poem/essay/manifesto 'I want a president' (quoted above; full text at https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/857278-i-want-a-dyke-for-president-i-want-a-person) as we use various materials to respond to the text through art.

This is a free event, and all materials are provided. All are welcome. If you have any accessibility needs, please email your requirements to l.r.henrickson@lboro.ac.uk in advance.
