Feminist Library - 43 years of feminist archiving and activism, and counting
14/3/19 2pm Moving Picture Cinema, Mercato Metropolitano, 42 Newington Causeway, London SE1 6DR
MA Animation at London College of Communication, UAL are pleased to present a screening of 15 short animated films made in collaboration with the Feminist Library feministlibrary.co.uk.
MA Animation students had the opportunity to collaborate with the feminist library to create animated “portraits” of key historical or contemporary figures related to the Feminist Library.
The Feminist Library is a large collection of Women's Liberation Movement and feminist literature based in London, as well as a meeting and events space. We have been supporting research, activist and community projects since 1975. In 2018 The Feminist Library celebrates 43 years of archiving and activism. Almost totally volunteer run and autonomous, the team has created and looked after one of the most important collections of feminist material in all of the UK, and provided an inspiring learning and social space for thousands of people over the years. It is a testament to the commitment of the wonderful women behind the Library that it remains open, and thriving, 4+ decades on. This project will bring to light and celebrate some of the stories of our inspiring volunteers..
