Kerning the Gap

Kerning The Gap is a collective of like-minded people who want to see more women in design leadership roles, hear their voices and be inspired to create change.

And She Was Like: BÄM!

Young female artist and designers from the Rhineland get together. From their website (via Google translate): ‘And She Was Like: BÄM! stands for a contemporary feminism that does not follow any dogma, that lives in diversity and diversity, that unites gender and generations. We believe that together we can achieve more, be seen and heard. We want to increase the visibility of women, create awareness of feminist issues and act together.’

We Are Here

We Are Here: British BME Women is an artist-led and artist-run platform created by Erin Aniker and Jess Nash who met at university. The aim is to provide an open platform for discussion around what it means to be British, led by BME women. The increase in anti-immigration rhetoric since the referendum to leave the EU last June makes the project particularly poignant. 

Initially starting out as a standalone exhibition at Alev Lenz Studio in Shoreditch (July 2017), it featured a mix of fourteen handpicked, established and emerging British, BME, Women artists, creating artwork that explored their dual identities and heritage. Erin and Jess were overwhelmed with the response to the exhibition so they decided to turn this into an ongoing project and platform, going on to work with Dulwich Picture Gallery and now LSE Library.
