Herbal histories & reproductive rights

  • Wellcome Collection 183 Euston Road London, England, NW1 2BE United Kingdom (map)

Join artist Rebecca Beinart and herbalist Rasheeqa Ahmad to make a collaborative collage of plants historically used for birth control and hormonal health. As we create this visual map we'll discuss how this knowledge travelled across different geographies and why it was shared or suppressed at different points in history. 

Rasheeqa runs Hedge Herbs a herbal medicine practice based in Walthamstow, and is part of the Radical Herbalism collective.
