Women’s Art Library bursary and more

The Women’s Art Library and Feminist Review have announced a bursary of £1200 for a 3 month residency based in The Women’s Art Library, which is part of Goldsmiths (University of London) Library, Special Collections and Archives. The residency is open to all students, artists and curators, and the closing date for applications is 16th April. The call for proposals is themed to highlight strategies that enable and sustain women artists’ practice. More information here.

As 2018 is the centenary of the Representation of The People Act, which first allowed (some!) women to vote in this country the Museum of London have an exhibition, ‘Votes for Women’ and events to commemorate this event  throughout 2018.

For more women related archives and resources there is The Women’s Library (which was housed at London Met until 2013), an excellent resource of material and objects  relating to women’s history in the U.K. from the late 19th century onwards, now part of L.S.E.

Or how about the Feminist Library, a large collection of Women’s Liberation Movement literature based in London.
