An A-Z of Dundonian Dissent

To launch The Ignorant Art School at Cooper Gallery, artist Ruth Ewan, storyteller Erin Farley and historian Siobhan Tolland will present An A-Z of Dundonian Dissent, offering up playful and sometimes surprising anecdotes from the city’s past, including tales of feminist activists, revolutionary trees and striking school children. This event will happen on Thursday 25 February, at 7:30pm.

This opening event will feature specially selected songs performed by Tayo Aluko, Tosh Flood and Lorraine Wilson alongside readings from Sit-in #1 Associate Occupier Hussein Mitha and playwright John McCann.

Dr Erin Farley is the Library and Information Officer for Local History at Dundee Libraries, who hold a large collection of local print, photographic and manuscript collections. She also researches the history of literature and folklore in Dundee and Angus. Outside of work, Erin is a traditional storyteller and one of the hosts of The Beans podcast. Ruth Ewan is an internationally celebrated artist whose research-led and critically engaged practice has drawn attention within contemporary art and socio-political history. Engaging with the circulation of radical ideas and social movements, her work explores the processes by which ideas take form and spread from individuals to society.

This event forms part of Sit-in Curriculum #1.
