On the last day of this month, The Wednesday Collective are inviting women, girls and all those who identify as female to join them at The Pankhurst Centre for creative activities and conversation (and a cuppa) to celebrate and share experiences of living as women.

Words To Our Daughters promises to be an informal, absolutely inclusive event which will provide the building blocks of inspiration for a brand new piece of theatre which will tour to theatres and community spaces in 2019. The new work will also form part of The Pankhurst’s Centenary City Vote100 Archive.

The Wednesday Collective and their collaborators, which include Mancunian acoustic trio, Taylor & the Mason, will lead the creative activities which will include writing, songwriting, craftivism, and a short sharing of the project so far.

Established in 2016, The Wednesday Collective is a group of female writer-performers who work collaboratively to tell women’s stories. Founded by theatre-makers Julie Burrow, Jenny May Morgan and Francesca Waite, Words To Our Daughters aims to foster a warm, supportive and collaborative atmosphere where all participants feel valued, heard and empowered.

So round up your sisters, aunts, granddaughters and nans for an inspiring day of conversation and stories, which will contribute to a collaborative and urgent conversation about female identity in 2018.
