Kicking off with a reflection from Doina Petrescu on SSoA’s original Feminist School of Architecture event which took over the tower some 20 years ago, the Feminist School of Architecture Teach Out captured a resurgence of feminist activity within the school. Held prior to the COVID-19 pandemic in early March the Teachout was an adhoc and opportunistic response to the UCU strike and was held out in the city at the Foodhall, a great venue that created a public platform for the event. Conversations were both critical and celebratory, exploring Foundations, Fields and Futures of a Feminist School of Architecture at SSoA and beyond.
We have reconvened since the event to discuss the @femschoolofarch as an activist, pedagogic and structural platform of intersectional care both inside and outside of SSoA.
