Put Her Forward

There are 925 public statues in the UK. 158 of these are women, and of these only 25 are of non-mythical, non-royal women. There are more statues of people called John. There are more statues of goats.

Put Her Forward is described as an artwork by the theatre group non zero one, commissioned by Heritage Open Days, that recognises living women who have positively impacted the people around them. Do you know of a woman who deserves her own statue? You can nominate online at http://putherforward.com or attend a workshop and nominate a living woman and up to 25 nominees will be 3D scanned, and 3D printed as photo-real sandstone figures.

With your nominations the aim is to to double the statues of non-mythical, non-royal women in England by September 2018.. 

 These works will be unveiled  across England during the Heritage Open Days weekends, 6-9 and 13-16 September 2018. Visit their site to find a workshop near you - Newcastle upon Tyne, Droitwich, Worcestershire, Leeds,  Brighton & Hove, Manchester, Preston, Bromsgrove, London.
