Artwork created by our member Sarah Taylor Silverwood documenting the Women’s Strike in March 2018 is included in a brand new zine, produced by Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery as part of their current exhibition WOMEN POWER PROTEST.
We are thrilled to be featured in this beautiful piece that will exist forever as a permanent record of a memorable day, as well as spreading the word about who Feminists Work For Change are and what we do.
Sarah is a visual artist with a practice rooted in drawing and language, used as material to produce publications, animations and installation works. Recent projects include New Art Gallery Walsall (solo show, forthcoming, 2019), Multistory (2018 commission) and the British Consulate in Chicago, USA (2014). She is a member of GU Women, a new Birmingham-based female collective, comprised of writers, curators, artists and researchers.
Sarah also created the stunning print and online design work for our fundraiser Talk Ain’t Cheap, and designed the fabulous Talk Ain’t Cheap tee! Sarah is a truly committed and hardworking member of FWFC, who always finds the time and energy to contribute her skills and ideas to FWFC projects, alongside managing a full-time career as an artist. Sarah is a feminist hero through and through, and we are extremely lucky to have her in our group.
WOMEN POWER PROTEST comprises art works by female artists who have explored protest, social commentary and identity in their work. Well worth a visit, it is a powerful, thought-provoking and moving exhibition. WOMEN POWER PROTEST runs until 31st March 2019.
