Club Des Femmes is proud to host an evening of feminist future vision as our contribution to the Horse Hospital's feminist sci fi weekend – Women on the Edge of Time.

We're wondering what will the woman of tomorrow be like? Will technology govern our future? Or Nature? Or will we?

We’re offering you the chance to share future visions by two of the world’s most exciting women directors. See Tilda Swinton four times over in Lynn Hershman-Leeson’s Teknolust: a critique of a world where science controls our destiny, and Wanuri Kahiu’s Pumzi: an encouragement to an eco-consciousness now before its too late.

Plus, we’re asking you to help create our very own Club Des Femmes’ Futurewoman. Working with filmmaker and artist Lisa Gornick, join us for a night of performative zine-making. Bring your future visions, utopian ideas, texts, images, visions and concepts and we’ll publish an amalgam of the night’s findings. What do Club Des Femmes women want for the future? It’s time to make a plan.

Please join us for a night of future vision and help create the Club des Femmes Futurewoman. If you can't make the event but would like to contribute images, ideas, words or concepts as your part of the zine-making then please email us
