Playing Womanhood Game in Cambridge
Words played out on the felt
A new conversation game on Womanhood is in progress
porcelain counters ready to fire
Womanhood is described as ‘the state of being a woman.’ But what does that really mean; there are many and varied stories surrounding what it means to be a women and in the conversation game created there is an opportunity to explore some of the stories.
Womanhood can be explored through language and objects and you are invited to send 10 words that you associate with being a women in order to contribute to our exploration of the unseen and the unheard.

Can you give me 10 individual words associated with ‘feeling at home’
I am interested in exploring what ‘feeling at home’ means to us. Looking at how we feel at home, where we feel at home and what ‘feeling at home’ enables us to do or be.
Please can you send me up to 10 words that relate to ‘feeling at home’. (In other words when you feel comfortable in an environment or group and can be yourself.) You can think about it in as broad or narrow a way as you want, perhaps look at it in terms of accommodation, work, social and leisure situations. Many thanks.
Any words given to me will be used for my current game – Home: the Conversation. The conversations I hope to facilitate through this game will be around the benefits of being at home and consequently what we lose out on if we don’t have a place to feel at home.
Just to say that if you do send me words for the game, your words will be kept as a group, together, but you won’t be identified directly. The game may develop and the words merge with others according to how the players play the game.

Contemporary Art Exhibition with work in
glass, ceramics, print and wax by
Pippa Davismoon, Charlotte Morrison and Emma Rawson.
Objects and Words in Transition
Three artists explore language within their art using glass, ceramics, wax and print. Being “absorbed in text” takes on a different meaning as the dynamics between text and objects become apparent. The works raise important questions about what objects can say that words cannot.
