15 June Meet – Women in Art

This month we have Mat Sanders from the Magic Lantern Art Education project coming along to lead a discussion on the history of women in Art.  Magic Lantern is an educational charity which uses visual learning in schools and a range of adult groups. The group use art to help people observe and explore the world around them and to think creatively and critically.   Their interactive shows of famous artworks bring to life and enhance a wide range of subjects while stimulating confidence, encouraging an imaginative use of language and sparking a lifelong enjoyment of culture.

Mat will talk to us about the history and depiction of women in art although he intends this to be a debate and discussion rather than a lecture – so please come along ready to get involved!   There may also be a practical element to the evening, and Mat is hot off the plane from Cannes so all in all, we have an interesting evening in store for us…

Usual time, usual place: Third Weds of the month from 7.30 – 9.30pm (doors open at 7.00pm) in the basement room of Borough Welsh Chapel, 90 Southwark Bridge Road, London, SE1 0EX. Guests pay £3.
