“When I speak of the erotic, I speak of it as an assertion of the life force of women,” writes American feminist writer, poet and activist Audre Lorde in her essay, “Uses of the Erotic: the Erotic as Power”.

She speaks, she continues, “of that creative energy empowered, the knowledge and use of which we are now reclaiming in our language, our history, our dancing, our loving, our work, our lives”.

This Friday, Science Gallery mediator Clara Hancock and artist Natasha Ruwona will lead a workshop based on this essay as part of the Science Gallery’s ongoing exhibition on intimacy.
