‘There is nothing new under the sun, but there are new suns‘ – Octavia Butler
Inspired by African-American author Octavia Butler’s last epigraph, New Suns welcomes writers, artists, academics, poets and audiences to explore contemporary feminism through the lens of mythology and current myth-making.
Recent events including the global Women’s March protests have created an explosion of energy, raising many questions around power, justice and solidarity. New Suns will make space for discussion on those topics and others – as varied as the #MeToo movement, occult poetry, bodies and sex work.
In the spirit of the 1980s international feminist bookfairs, there will be over thirty stalls to explore across the centre, and selected events for free.
