Come and celebrate the Liverpool launch of a powerful new book Fat Activism: A Radical Social Movement!
Bluecoat Gallery, Liverpool, Friday 17 June, 6.30-8.30pm
This exciting work by author and activist Charlotte Cooper is the product of a four year research project that asks ‘what do fat activists do?’ It is a refreshing take on fat people’s communities, histories and cultures as the war on obesity rages on.
Join us for a critically inspiring talk and Q&A with the author and a special screening of SWAGGA, a film made by artist Katarzyna Perlak about the process of creating the dance piece SWAGGA, a dance crafted out of strong wills and trembling flesh, featuring Charlotte Cooper and Kay Hyatt.
This event is presented by DaDaFest in collaboration with University of Liverpool’s engage@liverpool and is introduced and hosted by Dr Bethan Evans. Tickets are free but booking in advance is advised. Call Bluecoat’s Ticket and Information on 0151 702 5324.
