As part of our SHIFT Festival, Helen Knowles, Director and Curator of the Birth Rites Collection will be leading an in-person guided tour of the works currently on display around the Canterbury campus.

Join an in-person tour of the BIRTH RITES COLLECTION, the world’s first collection of contemporary art on the subject of childbirth. The collection comprises photography, sculpture, painting, artist books, print, wallpaper, drawing, new media and film.

In-person tours take place at the University of Kent in Canterbury. Full joining instructions will be sent 24 hours before the tour begins. This tour is part of the Shift Festival.

SHIFT FESTIVAL: Redefining the University as a playground of exchange and activity, SHIFT: reframe, reshape is a festival of invitation and surprise, where schools, buildings and people are shaken and stirred. From the Medical School to the Library, from the Law School to the Sports Centre, from the Business School to the Chatham Dockyard. Public spaces, communal areas, outdoor spaces, corridors, and perceived boundaries between academic disciplines, are all open to question.

FREE to all University staff and students – but please book here
