Celebrating International Women’s Day

18 Jan 43
Culturefest Web

In celebration of International Women’s day this week, we’ve pulled together some of our top picks of things to look forward to at Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts in the weeks ahead, as well as some news from our friends and colleagues. 

Split Britches: Unexploded Ordnances (UXO) combines Dr Strangelove-inspired performance with daring public conversation. In this show, Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver lace an interactive piece with the playful urgency of the political landscape. Split Britches present an up-to-the-minute topical interactive show which takes unexploded ordnances as a metaphor for the unexplored potential in us all - particularly elders – and tries to uncover it.  Check it out on Tuesday 13 and Wednesday 14 March, more information here.

Culture Fest is an event from Sussex University’s Afro Caribbean Society.  The event will include performance from our campus community that celebrates traditional female dances and cultures. Check it out on 16 March, more information here

Tune-Yards at Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts this Spring has now sold out but lead female singer Merrill Garbus must also be mentioned during International Women’s day for her work as an intersectional feminist. Using her platform to discuss women issues in progressive ways, Tune-Yards are a band that are not afraid to be political. Watch the video below and see what they are all about.  

In the spirit of today, we also think back to when Laura McDermott awarded Lady Susan Woodford-Hollick an honorary degree earlier this year at the University of Sussex Winter Graduation. Check out this snap (left) of our Creative Director with Lady Woodford-Hollick, a life-long campaigner for human rights and diversity, and a businesswoman and consultant with a wide-ranging involvement in broadcasting and the arts. Laura told us, “Sue’s daring spirit: her bravery and commitment to challenging the status quo is the thread that runs throughout her career.”
