Women and Power - For Me, For Her, For You

Artists LOW PROFILE piece of work for Women and Power

For me, for her, for you is a seven track audio work by artists LOW PROFILE - weaving together interviews, songs and recorded messages with new sound work by collaborator Neil Rose (who also co-edited, mixed and mastered the piece).

The artwork has been commissioned in response to the National Trust's Women and Power programme in the South West, a year-long programme during 2018 marking the 100 year anniversary of the passing of the Representation of the People Act (votes for women) and the long struggle for women’s suffrage.

This project has been made with thanks to members of the public, National Trust volunteers and women based within the South West who LOW PROFILE researched through the process of making the work. The artists also commissioned three new protest songs by the singer-songwriters Holly Kirkby, Cordelia O'Driscoll and Suck My Culture.

The tracks are best when listened to in order. You can find out more about each track, and the work, by taking a look at the PDF below. Happy listening.
