Performance & Exhibition
"Still I Rise"
Manchester Art Gallery
Sunday 7 October
As Manchester marks the centenary of women’s suffrage, a powerful collective of international women artists based in the North West, are coming together to create a pop-up, interactive trail around Manchester Art Gallery. With film, sculpture, textiles, painting, music, writing and poetry with cultural influences from Africa, Asia, Latin America and beyond, the women will lead you on a joyful journey of resistance, creativity and hope with echoes of women’s struggles across the world to be represented, respected and to be free.
Still I Rise is produced by Community Arts North West and Digital Women’s Archive North as part of Journeys Festival International. This trail will be suitable for all ages.
* There will be 3 scheduled performances during the day. Please check the website for details.
