Back in March I worked with photographer Liane Harris in running a portrait photography workshop and discussion session with a research group from Lambeth Women’s Project. This workshop is part of a longer project – called X Marks the Spot – about the late British photographer Jo Spence.
This project will be in progress for the next six months as part of Not Our Class, a new programme of education and participatory projects ran by Studio Voltaire which through research and practice takes the work of Jo Spence as a starting point for investigating the legacy and potentials of her work in relation to contemporary culture and life.
Lambeth Women’s Project is a voluntary, not-for-profit organisation that provides a women-run space dedicated to women’s services. They recognise the specific needs of women and provide ressources to help, support and empower women.
Studio Voltaire is a leading independent contemporary arts organisation that exists to support artistic practices and create a space for thinking, experimentation and reflection; its main activities are the provision of affordable studios, a renowned programme of exhibitions, performances and commissions, and a pioneering education programme.
