London born multi- disciplinary visual artist and digital illustrator Becki Kremer who now lives in Stoke will showcase her work within our campus cafe .
Becki ’ s work is heavily inspired by bold prints , floral patterns , her Caribbean heritage , eyecatching cartoons , and anything kitsch . Becki particularly enjoys loud colour combinations , and is always looking to work with as many varied mediums . Aside from illustration , Becki also regularly work on textile projects , large-scale hand painted murals , and running art workshops with some of the talented arts organisations locally .
How do we make the time to be creative ? While the benefits of creativity for both individual wellbeing and social cohesion are well recognised , finding the time to be creative remains a challenge .
In threading time geographer and maker Clare Holdsworth presents her own interpretation of making time for creativity . Using fabric craft the pieces in the exhibition capture how time is the material of making . Rather than seeing time as a barrier to creativity ; time threads creativity together through memory , starting , finishing , and enjoying the pleasure of making itself .
The exhibition will be supported by participatory activities offered by the Cultural Sisters , a participatory arts organisation based in Stoke on Trent .
The exhibition is funded by The Leverhulme Trust through a Major Research Fellowship : The Social Life of Busyness in an Age of De-Acceleration .
Public Lecture Professor Colin Cruise: Illuminating the Pre-Raphaelites Pragna Patel: The elimination of violence against all women: the grand challenge facing us today Violence against women and girls remains persistent throughout the world. As we witness the countless atrocities committed against women, we must also acknowledge the many struggles for freedom and justice waged by women everywhere. 25 November 1.00pm In this talk Pragna will reflect on the many silences and gaps in protection and justice that still endure. She will explore the reasons why some women are not included in the wider public discourse, laws and policies on eliminating violence against women and girls; why institutional failings continue; and why, ultimately, there can be no end to violence and inequality without women rising up to demand freedom for all.

Victorian artists such as Rossetti and Burne-Jones rediscovered them, exploring anew their use of colour, composition and storytelling devices. This lecture examines these new encounters with the vividly coloured miniatures from the past to see how they transformed the paintings of an important group of British artists, the Pre-Raphaelites and their followers. Colin Cruise is a freelance curator and writer and Emeritus Professor of Art History at Aberystwyth University. He has published widely on Victorian art, including many scholarly essays and exhibition catalogues and his book Pre-Raphaelite Drawing (Thames & Hudson, 2011). He is currently researching the works of the artists Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Frederic Cayley Robinson.
