Event description

Description

Women of Eastbourne aims to inspire the women of Eastbourne by celebrating and highlighting the work of the towns' most prolific women from history.

To launch the website for our Historical Women of Eastbourne Heritage Project, and take it out to the community, WayfinderWoman is having an exhibition of research, photos,models, interactive exhibits and interesting artifacts in the purpose built DC1 Gallery on Seaside Road, Eastbourne. There will be plenty to see and do, so do come along and discover the hidden history of Eastbourne women.

Women have often been overlooked when it comes to recording historical events. Of the 21 statues, memorials and plaques in Eastbourne, only one celebrates a female (author Lucy Atwell) and when Eastbourne celebrated its 700th anniversary as a market town, there was no mention of the role of women in its evolution. Now is the time to highlight women of influence in Eastbourne in the lead up to the forthcoming anniversary of female emancipation in the UK in 1918
. In this exhibition you will discover Authors,Artists,Suffrajettes,Law Makers and Breakers,Aviators and more!

All welcome. Free.
