On June ninth, 2018, to celebrate the close of Ekua Bayunu’s 8-week AIR project, “Women Hold up Half the Sky”, you are invited to participate in a day of events presenting and reflecting on the work.

Bayunu’s work will expand beyond local concerns to build on the themes of global women’s leadership and consider culture, the arts and creativity as tools for active citizenship of central significance.

The 8-week project incorporates elements of sculpture and film, and will include the participation of a diverse range of members of the local community. The celebration will host happenings all around the park, all culminating in a closing party at the Coffee Cranks Cooperative.

The events for the day are as fol...lows:
• An exhibition, including films of the project’s development, at Chorlton Lodge: 11-3pm
• An outdoor sculpture trail, which will take place across the park: 1-6pm
• Art Workshop in the community room at the Depot: 12-2pm
• Exhibition and Closing Party at the Pavilion: 2-6pm

The project draws from a central theme of the Pankhurst in the Park project, the legacy of the suffrage movement and the special significance of Alexandra Park in this history. Emmeline Pankhurst lived just on the borders of the park and 2018 marks not only the centenary of the right of women (over 30) to vote. It will also be a hundred and ten years since thousands of suffragettes marched in Alexandra Park.
