Cardiff, 1981. A group of women with hand-made banners embark on a march of over one hundred miles to Greenham Common military base – all in the name of nuclear peace.
This protest against nuclear missiles led to the establishment of camps that, for nearly two decades, drew women from all over the world, provided a place for female voices to be heard, and paved the way for future female activists.
Women for Peace displays the incredible craftsmanship and powerful designs of the protest banners from the Greenham camps. Join author Charlotte Dew in conversation about the creativity of the thousands of women who took stand at the protests, and whose struggle and tenacity continues to inspire and motivate activists today.
Charlotte Dew is a curator, researcher and writer, specialising in 20th century and contemporary craft. She is currently Public Programme Manager at The Goldsmiths’ Centre in London. Formerly she has held curatorial roles at the Crafts Council, The National Archives, The Mercers’ Company and The Women’s Library.
The talk will be presented on Microsoft Teams and will last approximately 30-40 minutes, followed by a 15 minute Q&A.
