I am an artist and student, currently writing my MA dissertation on the FWWCP and TheFED. Having spent nearly a year now researching into the groups work I've become interested by so many aspects: the writing produced, the methods of organising, ways of publishing/distributing, the types of politics involved, the changes that have come about...
I would like to invite existing and former members of the FWWCP and theFED to a meeting on Thursday 23rd May, from 1.30 - 3.30pm, in Sheffield. With the kind support of Nick Pollard who has offered the use of a room at Sheffield University, I would like to use the meeting as an opportunity to ask questions that I have and hear your responses.
If you might be interested in attending please do get in touch. I may also be able to cover travel expenses.
