On March Girl Friday Breakfast Club speaker will be Anita Taylor. Join us on Friday 26 March online at 8.30am (GMT), more information and booking here.
Anita Taylor is an artist, curator and educator. She is founding Director of the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize project (1994-present) and established Drawing Projects UK in 2009. She has extensive leadership, teaching, research and review experience in Higher Education in the UK and internationally, and is currently Dean of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design at the University of Dundee. Drawing is central to her practice - in the studio, in education, public engagement, as a writer and curator – and her advocacy for drawing as a vital means of communication and expression for all underpins this work. Co-author of Drawing [Cassell Illustrated, first published 2003], she has also written for The Guardian/Observer, Craft Arts International, Garageland, RA Magazine and has been interviewed for After Nyne, Interalia, Studio International, Times Higher Education, and the Artist’s Lives Oral History Collection, National Life Stories in the British Library Sound Archive.
The Girl Friday Breakfast Club was established by Kate Reynolds and Anita Taylor in 2018 to provide a friendly and informal space for women to meet and to hear from an interesting woman speaker, eat breakfast and drink great coffee or tea together at Drawing Projects UK on the last Friday of each month.
We held our first online Girl Friday in October 2020 after realising we had longer to go before we could gather again for breakfast due to lockdown. We aim to retain the informal format, and events are not recorded, so do book to join in - and do bring your own breakfast, or lunch or supper depending on where you are in the world!
All women, and those who identify as women, are very welcome to join the Girl Friday Breakfast Club.
We will send the Zoom link to registered participants by email in advance of the event, a reminder with the Zoom link is also sent 50 minutes before the event starts.
