What you’ll do

Get involved in producing DAYLIGHT, a collaborative newspaper that will feature women’s writing, art and ideas. Visit the printroom and learn how to set letterpress type and operate the Farley proofing press. Bring the names of inspirational women, a favourite quote to work with, or explore texts about women from the archive. We will set inspirational women’s names and words in print, creating pages for the newspaper DAYLIGHT.

This event is part of Daylighting, a four-day programme of events to challenge archives, change narratives and amplify new voices.
