I will be exhibiting and selling a new body of work that  uses typesetting and silk screen, inspired by the Durham Teaching Assistants fight against wage cuts and increased work hours.  Their enthusiasm, passion and sense of justice continues even today.  Although their fate has been delayed for another year, other TA’s in Derby, continue to fight to defend wages and conditions.

Roar – Pamphlet stitched typeset book £7 direct from the artist

The Chap Book ‘Knowledge is Power’ and typeset pamphlet  book ‘Roar’ celebrate unity and diversity, with words of wisdom from al-Mutanabbi. The lion, symbol of Durham TA’s, referenced by Jayaben Desai (Grunwick Strikers) and poet al-Mutanabbi draws together these stories of struggle and enlightenment.

Al-Mutanbbi Street in Baghdad remains a street of book sellers, stationers and cafes, even after a severe bomb attack that took place nearly 10 years ago.  Over 100 people were either killed or wounded in the attack on a street which signifies cultural freedom, knowledge and ideas.   This year marks the ten year anniversary of the bombing.  Poetry readings, gatherings and occasions mark this moment in time world wide.
