Women and Power - tell us your stories
Thank you to everyone who phoned and and told us about the women in your community, in your family or in the public eye that uses their position or time and energy to make a difference to the lives of others. We've now collected everything we need but come back in October to see how artists LOW PROFILE has turned these stories into a piece of audio art.
The artists 'LOW PROFILE' have been working with the National Trust in the South West to uncover stories about inspirational women who make change possible through their actions.
LOW PROFILE’s project celebrates and draws attention to figures who have contributed in different ways to the achievement of universal suffrage (votes for all), and also to women’s rights. Some of these stories may be linked to National Trust properties and to contemporary campaigners, activists and change makers.
We asked for your stories
Between 24 May and 13 August 2018, LOW PROFILE have been collecting your stories via a dedicated phone line and recording service. Extracts from these stories will be selected and compiled into a series of audio artworks to be published on the National Trust website and broadcast online.
