About The Table

The Table is about nurturing dialogue and nourishing exchange. Hosted by Charlotte Vincent and Claire MacdonaldThe Table intends to generate a new community for creative women, sharing food, artistic practice and feminist thinking. Designed to grow organically, The Table aims to capture and make available the individual voices and collective intelligence of female artists over the age of 40, working across art forms and disciplines. The Table is a growing international network of women whose voices and experiences are captured on this website.

The Table curates events in the UK and abroad including:

Table Dinners: nurturing conversations between established artists over food and documenting these conversations online.

Table Retreats: 2-5 day intensives that bring women together to seed new ideas and collaborations, open up discussion and share insights into creative practice and experience.

Coming To The Table: conversations between Charlotte, Claire and internationally renowned artists who work across art forms, documented online.

Table Swap: brokering the free exchange of homes, offices, nests, networks, resources and ideas between female artists.

Across The Table: brokering meaningful exchange between young artists and their more experienced counterparts.

Table Blog: fresh online thinking from Charlotte and Claire.

Table Links: an online resource of thought-provoking articles, publications, organisations and networks that focus on women’s lives.

The Table began in spring 2012. Vincent Dance Theatre supports The Table through its National Portfolio funding from Arts Council England.
