Closing event for Pride&Privilege at The Class Act

Saturday 25 May, 12-4pm. Free, drop-in.


Join Artist and Collections Community Panel member Corinne, for this special workshop, both online and in person at the Gallery, in support of Menstrual Hygiene Awareness Day (28 May).

Corinne uses their platform as an artist, and their Doll’s House artwork, to explore the concept of period poverty, which affects girls, women and people who menstruate all across the world. Many may not have access to clean water or menstrual products, or have the knowledge or education about menstruation (periods).

Corinne has reflected about their own experience of period poverty in their artwork currently on display as part of the Pride&Privilege exhibition at The Class Act. The exhibition closes on Sunday 26 May, just prior to Menstrual Hygiene Day.

In this workshop, which will take place simultaneously online and at the Gallery, Corinne will discuss their artwork while making bracelets in support of menstrual awareness.

Materials will be send out in advance to those attending online.

Please contact: Kiran Billing, Embedding Diversity Project Assistant via ccpwalsall@gmail.com for more information or to be send an activity pack for the online workshop. Those coming in person to the Gallery will receive the activity pack on attending.
