Event description

Description

come and get your copy of the '700 women' book and enjoy an evening of poetry readings, herstories, songs and discussions stimulated by the event. through crowd-funding and with the generous support of arts council england, sarah filmer has made a book of the '700 women' event that took place last october in god's house tower.

working as an artist in god’s house tower, sarah soon realised that its history was exactly that: a HIStory. many people shared her frustrations with the lack of representation of women (related to the building and beyond) through the ages, and as a simple symbolic gesture, she invited them to amass in ght on october 29th 2016, for ‘700 women’, an event centred around collecting herstories.
what a day that was: hundreds of women, men and children came – they wrote HERstories, either their own or those of significant women in their lives; they were photographed and drawn; they performed, watched others performing; they sang, they played ukuleles; they knitted, they made badges; they transformed ght into a vibrant, noisy, sharing, generous, her-story filled womanly space. this day generated fondest memories, as well as much material for future exhibition and sharing.
