~Womenholduphalfthesky is the name of my residency in Alexandra Arts as part of the Pankhurst in the Park 2018 programme initaited by Alexandra Arts.
The residency launched officially on the 14th April with the support of Global Arts Manchester and will conclude with an interactive celebration event in the park on the 9th June..
The theme of the residency has been an exploration of and a celebration of women taking an active role in shaping our communities, from the home, to the local, national and international.
There will be exhibition spaces, temporary sculpture in the woodland walk, an acoustic music space, a spoken word space, a planted installation, a baby sculpture play area, workshops......maybe even a table tennis tournament!!!
The idea is for as many creative people as possible living near or with a relationship with the park to come along and participate.
