What crucial social issues are we facing today? How can we best celebrate diversity? What are the steps towards equal rights for everyone? Rachael Haynes ponders these issues in her interactive installation Threads of Resistance, using language to capture the many voices of contemporary feminism.

Threads of Resistance

Artist Rachael Haynes draws from language from the many voices of contemporary feminism in her interactive installation, Threads of Resistance.

Presented as part of New Woman, the installation includes text-based drawing and fabric works derived from Rachael’s research into feminist social history archives.

Museum visitors are invited to express their hopes and visions for a better future by creating their own mini protest banners at our interactive Pocket Placard activity. Families and children are welcome.
