This spring Northfield Arts Forum and C&T are coming together to celebrate and tell the stories of Suffragettes and Suffragists in South Birmingham, and explore how lives have/haven’t changed since the Representation of the People Act (1918).
This Easter we’ll be working with young people in the Northfield area to create an augmented reality arts trail around Northfield Library that brings to life the local people campaigning for equal voting rights 100 years ago, and key events – like the burning of the Library!
(and burning of carriages at Kings Norton station, the attack at Kings Norton Grammar school, slashing paintings in BMAG – and more!)
On Tuesday 2nd April 2019 Dr Nicola Gauld will be joining NAF and C&T to talk about her research into suffragettes and suffragists in Birmingham. We’ll also be welcoming local people of ALL ages to share their knowledge and their own stories about women’s rights and experiences over the past 100 years. There’ll be a talk but also lots of conversations!
If you want to join the project it’s a great way to find out more and start getting ideas – and bring your parents/grandparents/friends!
WHEN? Tuesday 2nd April 2019, 6.30 – 8.30pm
COST? FREE! Refreshments provided
WHERE? Allen’s Cross Community Centre
WHO? Everyone of all ages and abilities!
