International Women's Day: Pageant On Paper

Join us in the Sillitoe Room for a very special event on International Women's Day. Two theatre designers, Eleanor Field and Laura Cordery, have created an enormous drawing that celebrates all the incredible achievements of women past and present.

They want you to join in, celebrate the women who have influenced and inspired you by adding to this enormous drawing which continues to grow as it travels throughout the land.

From the designers, Eleanor and Laura:

"The idea began with a desire to celebrate Edith Craig and her diverse and prolific practice in theatre as a designer, director, costumier, actor and company founder as well as her work as an activist in the Suffrage movement. She is little known compared to her brother, renowned theatre director/designer Edward Gordon Craig, and famous mother, Ellen Terry."

Come and hear all about Eleanor and Laura's brilliant project, and make history by adding your own contributon! If you don't want to draw, you can ask Eleanor and Laura to add your favourite woman on your behalf.

All welcome!

***The event is free, but please book a place in order to attend. If you would like to contribute to the drawing, please get in touch in advance.***

Waterstones Nottingham is wheelchair accessible. Please get in touch about any accessibility requirements.
