- Part of...The Future World of Work
Womxn is Work, May – Jul 2018
Marking one hundred years since the suffragettes secured the first Women’s votes, Womxn is Work delves into women's working rights and addresses our aspirations for the future through the revisiting of the past. Over the course of 8 weeks Liv Wynter and Grrrl Power Liverpool have collaborated with a group of women and non-binary people to co-design a direct action that questions the unrecognised labour undertaken every day. The group is made up of students, mothers, carers and teachers all united in their fight against unrecognised labour.
The project is led by artist and activist Liv Wynter and collective Grrrl Power, in collaboration with an intergenerational group of young people and adults who identify as female or non-binary, focussed on a series of public-facing events blurring the lines between art, activism and skills development.
The programme comprised 6 intensive workshops and 3 public events to present the campaign and engage other communities. This project has been deployed at a critical moment for social justice and dialogues in gender representation, providing the city a community led initiative to aid and empower residents in the context of work.
