Rose Sinclair to discuss Dorcas societies at Being Human festival

Designer Rose Sinclair, who is a Lecturer in Design (Textiles) at Goldsmiths, will be involved in a ‘Textile Networks” workshop on 14 November as part of the ‘Being Human’ Festival of Humanities. Rose “will lead a discussion on Dorcas societies of the 1950–60s, which brought together Caribbean women through textiles and acted as networks for social and economic change. The untold oral stories of Dorcas society members will be told through an accompanying installation.”

The workshop will take place between 1.15 and 4 pm, at St James Hatcham Building, New Cross, and it is part of Goldsmiths’ “Radical New Cross: Protest and Dissent 1875-2015” series. Admission is free and open to all, but booking in advance will be required. More information can be found on the festival’s website.
