Women in the City

Panel Discussion

in collaboration with Civic Society

Join this panel discussion about the experiences of women navigating and living in the city. When cities are planned, safe environments for women are not being considered and inadvertently public spaces are created that are unsafe. With this event we want to investigate how a more inclusive approach to creating city spaces can be found and how we could make that happen.

Planning, or lack of it, impacts on urban spaces. We will explore whether female artistic responses to living, working and being in the city are uniquely different and how women who have found refuge in the city experience the city.

The event will be at the exhibition “Found Cities, Lost Objects: Women in the City” curated by Lubaina Himid and there will be time to view and reflect on the work on display.

Join us for an evening of debate and exchange of thought on the female experience of the urban environment. Host for the evening will be Danni Ebanks-Ingram who will joined by panellists Deborah Broomfield, Katy Hawkins and Anna Fawcett.

Guided Walk: Looking Up at Birmingham

In collaboration with Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery and Heritage Week

Led by Christiane Worth , MA Art History

Christiane makes it her mission to share her passion for Art & Architecture and make it accessible to everyone.

The idea is rather simple, what happens when we look up? What do we see? This is something we don’t do very often, especially not in a city we know well. We have our familiar routes, there is no need to notice anything. There are many other distractions, mainly our phones. The walk is an invitation to look and see new things in the city.
