Kim Duff installation and 100 Deeds: on display now

From 4-14 June 2013, the foyer of the People’s History Museum will be the temporary home of an installation by artist and Bolton University student Kim Duff. The works are inspired by the Suffragette movement, and represent various stages of women’s oppression.

The installation accompanies a projection of 100 Deeds, the outcome of a project by Sarah Evans and Jenny Gaskell. 100 Deeds invites you to become a modern day history maker by thinking about what feminism and gender equality mean to you and then acting on those thoughts. You can read more about the project in Jenny and Sarah’s own words in their recent post.

If you'd like to come and check out the display, it's free and now on display within museum opening hours until 14 June. It kicks off a series of events to commemorate the centenary of suffragette Emily Wilding Davison’s act, which we will be reviewing here over the coming weeks.
