The Study Sessions

Still I Rise

27 Oct 2018 - 27 Jan 2019

The Study Sessions are a series of informal reading and discussion groups. Each season we base the sessions on subjects raised in our exhibition and they are led by experts on the subjects. Reading material is circulated in advance via email. 
 
This season’s Study Sessions will focus on subjects exploring the role women have played in the history of resistance movements and the creation of alternative forms of living. Join discussions and read about transnational feminism, gender representation in the media, transgressing stereotypes, queer theory and more.
 
Come to one session or all!
 
Please note that places for these sessions are very limited, to avoid disappointment please reserve a place emailing Mercè at merce@nottinghamcontemporary.org
