Review – Summer Fayre 2017

Summer Fayre 2017

Our Summer Fayre took place on Saturday 12th August, with much activity from top to bottom of the building. Stall holders packed into the meeting room, selling beautiful handmade wares, zines, children’s books, and so on, while in the kitchen, tasty offerings of stews, salads and cake were created. The programme kicked off with a high energy Zumba class, in the Zine making room there was a flurry of paper, glue, magazines and scissors as people, especially our younger supporters, made their own original designs. Later, in the Creative Writing workshop, women were inspired to make spontaneous feminist flash fictions. Meanwhile, on the upper floor, the tempo was even quicker, as Kitsch Kitchen Karaoke gave beautiful voice to all our pent up feminist aspirations, with songs from our favourite female artists! There were brilliant packed out discussions on Housing and Gentrification (more information on this below) and Intersectionality and Latin American feminisms. We discussed our new building design with the Hi Vis collective and watched Anais Charles’ inspiring documentary about the Library’s history and ongoing survival. It was so nice to see so many old and new friends in the Library. Thank you, feminist family and our fellow tenants in the building for all your support – we look forward to doing it all again soon!
