Manchester Histories Festival launch

Manchester Histories Festival at Manchester Art Gallery

7th June 2018
The Manchester Histories Festival launch was a great event. I was invited to read my commissioned piece 'Syrinx' next to the painting that inspired it (‘Syrinx’ by Arthur Hacker). And I was surrounded by the paintings targeted in the 1913 Suffragette direct action – a truly atmospheric experience.
Proud to share the evening with marvellous writers Kate Feld, Michelle Green & Maz Hedgehog.
Thank you Manchester Histories Festival!

Regarding Women - Portrait Gallery

Amid a collection of art works dominated by the male perspective, three writers present new work on women looking at themselves, interrogating the way they are depicted, and considering what it is to be a woman in the world. Kate Feld, Rosie Garland and Lara Williams will perform fiction, lyric essay and poetry in an event specially produced for Wonder Women.

This event is part of Wonder Women, Manchester's annual feminist festival. From 3-13 March 2016, we celebrate the women's movement born in our city through film, art, music, walking tours, gallery takeovers, comedy and debate, asking how far we've come in 100 years – and how far we have yet to go.
