We’ve just heard about Deeds, Not Words, an exhibition showcasing an ongoing body of work that depicts women’s roles within protest movements in the UK, by British documentary photographer Denise Laura Baker. This opens on Saturday 27th January and is right up our street – we can’t wait to attend!
“Acts of civil disobedience rarely go unpunished and those of us that commit these acts of love, in order to protect life, do not do so without consequences. Nevertheless, we believe we know how history will judge us.” Gail Bradbrook of Extinction Rebellion
