Great 3-page piece in yesterday’s Observer Review on ‘A Room of Their Own’, our new project with #MagnumPhotographer Susan Meiselas and women in a Black Country refuge. “Turning its pages, the first thing you notice is how startlingly few people appear in the pictures she took over several months in 2015 and 2016 (a period when, as their funds were cut, the refuges “had to downsize fairly dramatically”). On the rare occasions when a woman can be seen, her face may be obscured; the presence of any children is usually indicated only by the sight of scattered toys and tiny T-shirts drying on radiators.” – Rachel Cooke Made in partnership with @CreativeBlackCountry #ACEMidlands #MagnumPhotos #SusanMeiselas #womeninrefuge #Multistory #BlackCountryStories

Great to have a visit from students and teachers from The Architectural Association @aaschool (MPhil in Media Practices programme). Brilliant presentation about The Public by @grahampeet, followed by a talk on our #BlackCountryStories programme, led to discussion about pros and cons of showing work in an arts venue. Thanks for initiating @pollybraden
