Out of This World

Oct. 27, 2018

VIEW is a project in Aberdeen, part of the Visual Arts and Culture Programme at University. The event marks the centenary year of the Representation of the Peoples Act 1918 and celebrates the achievements of some of the very many women still overlooked by history. There will be activities and a talk - all free - a participatory performance on Castlegate, making artworks to celebrate the achievements of women over the last 100 years of suffrage.

The talk will cast a beady feminist eye on how UK civic statues give the impression that it is almost only men who have ever done anything worth commemorating and how that is changing with great women - activists, reformers, and pioneers - begining to be honoured at last.
