Abstract

See Red Women’s Workshop was a feminist screen-printing poster workshop in London, born out of the 1970s Women’s Liberation Movement. It was set up in 1974 by three ex-art students to create visually powerful posters that challenged negative media and cultural stereotypes of women and which responded to the growing multiplicity of feminist concerns such as cuts in welfare, housework, childcare, women’s heath issues, racism, nuclear weapons, sexuality and more, including work of other groups. See Red worked collectively at all levels, from decision making through to production. During the lifespan of the workshop many women learned to design and print on the job and See Red was committed to skill sharing. As a former collective member, Anne’s presentation will draw together threads from: the workshop’s history and recent resurgence of interest in collective practice, feminism and DIY culture, intergenerational radical pedagogy including the ‘See Red See Darko’ workshop at Middlesex in 2016 and the process of writing the See Red book (Four Corners Books, 2016).
