Drop in to our pop-up Feminist Library and join us in creating space for herstory to be produced

Join in the exploration, and making, of herstory. Browse some of the fascinating material that makes up the archive, explore DIY culture and knowledge-sharing, and challenge the dominant norms to make space for other voices.

Chat with some of the volunteers who keep the library running and learn about its unique history and its importance as a place for dialogue in the past, present and future. This event is programmed by the Feminist Library, a Tate Exchange Associate.
