As part of the Audacious Women Festival, DOK participated in an event with Deirdre Brock, MP for Edinburgh North and Leith. This took place in the Living Memory Association in Ocean Terminal on Saturday 25 February. This was a lively discussion about the history of women in art, covering everything from the Guerrilla Girls of the 1980s to artists struggling against sexism and gender inequality today.
"It’s not just with politics and placards that audacious women break down conventional boundaries but with pencils, print and paint. In Edinburgh’s creative heart, Deidre Brock MP will lead a panel discussion with contemporary working artists about how art can defy prevailing attitudes and prejudices and help reshape society".
