East End Women: The Real Story
We helped to develop the East End Women: The Real Story exhibition as part of the East End Women's Collective, celebrating women's involvement and leadership in social and political change in east London. Funded by donations through 38 Degrees, the exhibition was launched at St George's-in-the-East in Shadwell in May 2016, and was on display in the church throughout 2017.
We're not finished!
A pop up exhibition about women's activism in east London, including the East London Federation of the Suffragettes, and drawing on new oral history interviews. Developed by Eastside Community Heritage with our support, the exhibition was displayed at Whitechapel Idea Store in March 2016, and was accompanied by several community workshops around the exhibition's themes with groups of young women in east London.
