Ericka Beckman and Marianna Simnett

4-11pm / Galleries

The galleries will be open until 11pm, with the chance to see the current exhibition from Ericka Beckman and Marianna Simnett after hours, whose works explore the meaning of ritual through a spectrum of actions, mediations and narratives.

Mural-making with Laura Callaghan

Exploring archetypes and narratives, from fairytales to everyday life, join ROOT-ed for a zine-making workshop to re-write your own story!

Let’s map the internet for gender territories!

5-7pm / Learning Space

Free, drop-in

We are surrounded by constant noise, images, comments and followers. Do you check your phone first thing in the morning? Is it Facebook or WhatsApp?

This LightNight, help us to map out your digital rituals. We'll be creating a collaborative map of female and non-binary territories, from the historical temples and statues built to worship Goddesses, to modern rituals of ‘Liking’ and ‘Following’. To make sense of our maps, we’ll discuss how ancient female archetypes affect how women see themselves today. Explore the fairy tales of the past, and discover how those characters have evolved to be modern icons… How did Princess Elsa become a strong empowered woman, after centuries of Sleeping Beauties? Bring your family and help us shape a Big Map of female archetypes through time!
