Due to the popularity of this event, it is now taking place in the Headley Lecture Theatre at the Ashmolean Museum.

“I am not a painter in the strictest sense… I am a political strategist who uses a visual language to encourage conversation, argument, change.” Lubaina Himid

Be part of this dynamic event about the future of art education in secondary schools. Join artist and educator Lubaina Himid and collaborators to explore how learning to think like artists can open up fresh ways for young people to perceive the world and their place in it.

Collaborators include artist Helen Cammock; Casablanca Biennale curator Christine Eyene; artist Evan Ifekoya; photographer Dr Ingrid Pollard, writer and curator Marlene Smith, Tate Modern curator Dr Zoe Whitley.

This event series asks what ideas could be taught in schools to demonstrate the power of art and equality, and how we can better share and discuss the concern that art is as much about her-stories as his-stories.

This event has developed from the event She who rewrites Herstory rewrites History (part 1) on 18 February 2017 and She who rewrites Herstory rewrites History (part 2) on 3 June 2017.
