Watch Wednesdays: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance

To coincide with the Arnolfini ‘Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance’ exhibition, the VCRG’s recent ‘Watch Wednesdays’ film series examined the experiences of women in their individual and collective actions as they rebel, break conventions and reclaim history.

‘Watch Wednesdays’, the VCRG’s film screening and discussion group for UWE Art and Design students are relaxed, informal drop-in sessions. The sessions are a great opportunity for students to develop their ideas and discuss theory in an interdisciplinary, cross–level, peer group. Screenings took place on four consecutive Wednesdays, 2.30-5pm in the Arnolfini Dark Studio and the films were followed by discussion around themes linked to the ‘Still I Rise’ exhibition.
