Between the Waves – Feminist Library at Tate Exchange


The Feminist Library was again at Tate Exchange at the end of June. Our curatorial group created a two-day exhibition and event programme, Between the Waves, paying homage to Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp. This creatively explored ideas of home, migration and the connections between movements, past and present.


In the makeshift ‘campsite’ space a variety of activities took place. These included reading groups in English and Spanish, a creative writing workshop, drumming, weaving, reading space and drop-in making activities for all ages run by SHELF Collective. We also screened the 1983 documentary ‘Carry Greenham Home’ on loop throughout the weekend, plus films about the Feminist Library past and present and memories of Greenham. Thanks to all who contributed to make this such a special and magical space. Here are some photos of the weekend.
