Two weeks of art interventions, workshops and gatherings celebrating feminist activism. Organised by The Sisters of Perpetual Resistance, the fortnight opens with a show by five emerging artists featuring sonic and anarchist art.
This exhibition looks at the history of animals in storytelling, from ancient cave paintings to cat memes. A family trail and children's reading area will keep younger visitors busy.
In this exhibition of prints, drawings, videos and objects, artist-in-residence Eleanor Morgan explores the boundary between living and non-living materials and looks at the way minerals become living things.
