'Some Girls at International Project Space' convenes a forum, within the context of Patrick Staff's exhibition ‘A Factory as it Might Be’, that seeks to develop new dialogues around the Some Girls poster project.
The Some Girls project was undertaken in the early 1980s by the Madeley Young Women's Writing and Design Group facilitated by Carola Adams with Graham Peet and Jonnie Turpie. The outcome of the collaboration was a set of 9 posters, developed around the experiences of the young women involved and underpinned by an inter-generational and collective ethos.
Carola Adams and Graham Peet will be present for the event on the 24 April 2013 when there will also be a screening of the film, Giro-Is this the modern world?. The film, produced by the Birmingham Film and Video Workshop in 1984, has its roots in the modes of production explored during the Some Girls project.
