- Bankside, London SE1 9TG, UK
Organised by Women Like Me
Women Like Me are joining Pempeople at Tate Exchange to explore stories of migration with women from BAME communities.
We will be joined by some special guests to openly discuss what community, movement and creativity means for first and second generation migrants.
Women Like Me members will also receive free tickets to the Olafur Eliasson's exhibition In Real Life (limited availabiltiy).
Movement has had a massive influence on the local community. It continues to be the foundation for Southwark's multicultural influences and eclectic heritage.
Will the future generations remember the tales of the past ones? Will they share them further? The event will engage intergenerational voices through a range of creative media.
It will function as a continuous inquiry of movement, language and origins. Interactive workshops, open discussions, performances and screenings will uncover stories lost in the midst of the borough’s regeneration.
Pempeople is a Peckham based non-profit social enterprise with the aim to build capacity for local residents. Career support and professional opportunities are at the core of their practice. They encourage people to empower themselves in and outside of their community. They also help create favourable conditions for locals to develop their ideas and bring those to life. Pempeople are a strong advocate for increasing a deeper understanding of the arts. Working directly with local communities, they particularly support areas affected by greater social and economic deprivation.
About Women Like Me:
The 'Women Like Me' collective is made up of dynamic, like-minded women who are passionate about solving racial and gender inequality issues inside and outside the workplace. We have monthly meet up sessions in forward-thinking venues across London where we explore different themes and issues using design thinking and sharing our experiences. In this way, we make it possible to coin out and create opportunity using our stories, experiences and perspectives to facilitate change.
