Resilient and Resisting welcomes the Mayday Rooms, who bring a travelling archive to the Arcola: for an evening of DIY History training, archive exploration, with a participatory recorded discussion. Featuring material from Queeruption, Dissenting Ephemera: Women’s Movement and Wages for Housework.

Tea and cake.

At the event Rosemary and Fani from the MayDay Rooms will talk about the archive and possibilities to be involved. Jet Moon of Resisting and Resilient will talk about ethics and guidelines for recording Oral Histories. 

After looking at archive material you are invited to take part in a recorded discussion reflecting on what you have seen. 

We will also talk about how squatted spaces and affordable housing have supported social organising and community life. Various concepts of work, what ‘counts’ as work and how or current economic climate affects this.
