Talking with Electricity

CAS (Chapel Arts Studios) partnered with artist’s writing project, Yellowfields to bring you this online event in celebration of International Women’s Day 2021.

With a central theme of ‘listening to women’s voices’, whether through conversation with each other, with material, with process and landscape, Talking with Electricity showcased a variety of films, readings and discussions which focus on different elements of the creative voice of women.

Misselbrook’s ‘rant’ entitled ‘Outside, Inside the Forest’ created in late 2019 was screened as an opening film to the event asking ‘Can you hear me?’ to the online audience and participators.
