We are delighted to be hosting Community Hotspot groups again this winter.
The groups will happen every Thursday from 11th Jan – 18th April, 10am-12pm. The sessions will run in 3 blocks of 5 weeks and a different artist will facilitate each block. The groups are free to join but booking is essential as spaces are limited. Hot drinks and biscuits will be provided during the halfway break.
During each two hour session a female artist will use reading material and images to spark conversations on female related topics.
Maria Pavledis will be leading the sessions on 21st and 28th March.
These sessions will use an experiential ‘Shared Reading’ (Read Aloud) approach to explore the diaries and writings of women artists including Frida Kahlo and Louise Bourgeois and to look at the expression of trauma through the unique voices and work of women artists.
Maria Pavledis is a Norfolk based artist and printmaker who works with the dream-like world of fairy tale and narrative, drawing upon the relationships between animals, humans and nature, including the darker and uncanny elements. Maria originally studied painting studied at Norwich School of Art and then continued to an MA in printmaking at Camberwell College of Art
Maria has exhibited and is collected widely She is also a Librarian who uses Shared reading as a way of engaging with writing.
In keeping with the original Tilted Women event in 2022 we ask that for the first hour, anyone who attends who identifies as a man, listens to the discussions and saves their comments until after the break.
