Manchester's Modernist Heroines Walking Tour
Thursday, June 21, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (BST)
Manchester, United Kingdom
Please join us for another of our very popular Modernist Heroine's Walking Tours. The walk takes inspiration from ten remarkable women with connections to Manchester and the region Whilst celebrating their achievements, we will also uncover hidden histories and power relations which have shaped the modern city,
We will share tales of explorers, aviatrixes, archictects, artisits and more to reveal the valuable role women have played in defining and resisting dominant perspectives of the city.
The tour will commence at 6pm starting from Ken Yasouda's Touchstone sculpture located at the entrance to the Bridgewater Hall in central Manchester. The tour will last for approximately two hours.
Places strictly limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment. As usual this is totally free!
Manchester's Modernist Heroines is an ongoing project created through a collaboration between Manchester Modernist Society, The Loiterer's Resistance Movement,and The Shreiking Violet, Thanks also to
Manchester Metropolitan University

About The LRM
The LRM (Loiterers Resistance Movement) is an open collective with a shared love of Manchester and an interest in psychogeography, social justice and public space. We are a not-for-profit group and each month we organise a walk, game or other event exploring the city. The LRM embark on psychogeographical drifts to decode the palimpsest of the streets, uncover hidden histories and discover the extraordinary in the banal. We aim to nurture a critical awareness of everyday space, (re)engaging with and (re)enchanting the city.
