Following a year of interesting discovering, as part of the Plymouth Eco-feminism Discussion group, I felt it was time to do something practical and move the dialogue about oppression and gender to a more public space. I was also interested in seeing how local artists felt about this matter.
I organised the first session of Feminist Fusion on February 2014, with the support of different artists friends and a kind matron. The idea was to generate a public space to question, explore and discuss patriarchy and other social issues, while supporting female artists in different disciplines to counteract the lack of representation of women's way to make art. I now include a seasonal participatory craft project for people to engage during the show. Feminist Fusion has become a bi-monthly event and a very rewarding experience of constant collective exploration and creativity.
