the reading room :: e-newsletter #31

Hi all,

Our fundraising campaign is going well so far with almost 50% of our target acheived! But we have less than 3/4 of the allocated time left, so we still need your support. Your help will go directly to improve the reading room's lighting for reading and for exhibitions and hopefully make it a wireless hotspot. We'd love it if you could spread the word amongst your networks and friends. (

Currently exhibiting at the reading room is a beautiful photographic exhibition by Natasha Lee. Natasha's work focusses on Human Rights, in particular gender equality and the rights of women in Turkey. The exhibition is still up until the end of the month, so please come down and take a look. July will see a new exhibition by two young artsists. More info soon.

Our exhibition calendar is filling up with shows booked in from July to November. If you are interested in exhibiting or know someone who could be, please get in touch.

For the most up-to-date info check back here, or the facebook group, or join the mailing list! Email with 'subscribe' in the subject line. Oh and we tweet now
