Sisterhood is Still Powerful
A participatory photography exhibition curated by Georgia Williams
Sisterhood is Still Powerful is a participatory photography exhibition taking place as part of Photo Gloucester. To celebrate women in all our facets and pluralities we are inviting local women to be a part of the conversation. Glossy is excited to present a real time installation involving participants to come have their photos printed and displayed in a contemporary exhibition during the festival.
We invite all women to co-produce the narrative of Women and Sisterhood with their images. This exhibition is a direct response to the need to sustain and protect our solidarity while creating a stronger female voice and presence in the city.
The title is drawn from Feminism is for Everybody by bell hooks, American cultural theorist, activist and feminist writer.
As part of the exhibition, curator Georgia Williams will lead an open discussion session on Sunday 28th between 12:00 and 16:00.
This will take place during the live installation to encourage further dialogues between local women and the importance of their experiences. As a local woman herself, Georgia feels it’s important to create accessible spaces for rich conversation within the city, particularly those for women. The session will operate on a drop in basis that is informal and relaxed. This is a chance for women to discuss the photographs on display, share their stories and be part of the growing community of sisters in the city.
This is a welcoming and safe space. We have a zero tolerance policy for any racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia.
” Unity amongst women of Gloucester.”
