Curated by Dr Susan Croft for Unfinished Histories/SuffrageArts.

Featuring posters produced by the early Women’s Liberation Workshops (WLW) from 1969 onwards, alongside posters for companies like Beryl & the Perils, Clean Break and Theatre of Black Women, and for local government campaigns like Women Into Manual Trades. Camden, with its history of radical thought, squatting and social experiment was central to the 1970s women’s movement with 7 of London’s 27 WLW groups listed in 1972 giving Camden addresses.

The exhibition reflects the work of Unfinished Histories in preserving the archives and gathering oral histories of radical theatre of this period and the cultural contexts of which it was part. The book Re-Staging Revolutions will be on sale during the exhibition.

Open Thurs 9am – 5m; Fri & Sat 5.30pm – 10pm; Sun 11am – 6pm

FREE – Just Turn Up
