London, May 2016
Summer Supper
Hosted by Lucy Soutter, Susan Hyland & Zoe Crosher

A celebration of Reemergence:
The reappearance of artworks (especially by women)
The rediscovery of artists (especially female ones)
The revival of good ideas whose time has come (again)
The re-launch of projects whose full potential remains untapped.
Refresh, relax and recharge with us over supper and drinks.

Founded by artist Zoe Crosher, “ The Fainting Club” is an old boys’ club, for girls. It gathers over food and drinks when inspiration strikes, and aims to strike its members with inspiration. It celebrates and draws creative women from multiple disciplines—artists, writers, filmmakers, chefs, musicians—and welcomes any and all like-minded souls. Started in Los Angeles and based on the knowledge that strong, interesting and intelligent women are more powerful as a group, the club has begun to expand internationally. It now has chapters in New York, Mexico City, London and Hong Kong. All new members must be invited in person or, if distance prevents this, verbally, as connection and conversation are key to the club’s purpose. The only requirement for joining is a generous, collaborative spirit and a willingness to support other women. – Charlotte Druckman, The New York Times
