FAS runs community-focused projects based on our collections.

Our most recent is Hatpins to Hashtags (2018), an innovative region wide project developed by Feminist Archive South exploring and reclaiming the tools of democracy to mobilize activism and celebrate herstory.

Throughout Autumn and Winter 2018, a dynamic programme of digital engagement, educational workshops and exhibitions across the south west will advocate for greater gender parity in local and national politics and increase knowledge of UK democracy.

This project has been funded by Women’s Vote Centenary Grant Scheme administered by the Government Equalities Office.

You can learn more about the project on the Hatpins to Hashtags website.
