stil i rise

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.

As Manchester marks the centenary of women’s suffrage, The Travelling Heritage Bureau, 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 on Sunday 7th October 2018.

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. Expect film, sculpture, textiles, painting, music and poetry with cultural influences from Africa, Asia, Latin America and beyond.

Still I Rise is directed by Yusra Warsama, produced by Community Arts North West and Digital Women’s Archive North, in partnership with Manchester Art Gallery as part of Journeys Festival International and Black History Month.

This trail is FREE and will be suitable for all ages.

Trail Times: 12.30pm 2pm 3.30pm Trail length: Approximately 40 minutes
