50 years have now passed since the Abortion Act, which legalised abortions from regulated practices in Britain. For this special milestone, Protein Studio’s latest event will raise awareness about women’s choice, gender equality, and most pressingly, the vote to Repeal the 8th amendment in Ireland. Millie Tyler and Leah Fredrickson’s project 50 Years of Choice weaves all these threads together. Expect a day full of workshops and discussions, exploring how design can spark conversations about reproductive rights and inclusivity; meanwhile an evening full of eye-opening entertainment, with the launch of a limited edition zine celebrating the Abortion Act, with creative responses from 50 female typography artists from around the world. RSVP online to secure yourself a spot on the guestlist – all profits will go to the Abortion Support Network, a UK based charity which provides financial support and accommodation to women forced to travel from Ireland to have a safe and legal abortion here.
