As part of The Power and The Virtue: Guido Reni’s Death of Lucretia exhibition, the Elementary Sisterhood are sharing a story session and workshop. They are a group of writers who created a collection of stories of Sisterhood to raise money for Newcastle Woman's Aid.
Come along, meet the writers, hear their stories and create your own.
This powerful short film, which audiences have called 'life changing', shares three real North East women's stories of their personal experiences of domestic abuse. The script was created from their stories, in the exact words in which they told them to the filmakers. The survivors also helped to make the set, costumes and props.
Arts education and training company Changing Relations C.I.C will host this thought-provoking panel talk, asking a question which is bound to ignite many opinions - "Is all art activism"?
Guido Reni's painting style is sublime, yet the subject of the central painting in The Power and The Virtue exhibition is violent- a woman who has committed suicide after being raped. This apparent contradiction raises the familiar question of whether art is purely for art's sake, or is it driven by, or accountable for, a social purpose?
