Archival film night: Taking Space, Making Space! 1970s feminist spatial interventions + radical placemaking in London and NYC

May 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm BST

Join us for another archival film night and collective discussion! Assembling together a variety of short documentary films from the 1970s, this event will highlight the often overlooked history of feminist spatial interventions and radical placemaking practices — focusing particularly on the squatted formation of women’s centers — in the contested urban contexts of NYC and London.

This will be followed by an open conversation and reflection around the significance and strategies of these actions and histories both then and from today’s perspective, particularly in relation to ongoing and current struggles such as the occupations by Sisters Uncut. We will also have additional archival materials from Mayday Rooms available to browse and learn more!
