Wed 8 March is International Women’s Day and we’d like to invite you to join us for a host of inspiring arts events celebrating some of the artistic, social and cultural achievements of women.
Women In Cinema
Check out Wednesday’s screening of A Stitch Of Life, the latest film from acclaimed female author, poet, playwright and director Yukiko Mishima. Dressmaker Ichi inherits her grandmother’s quaint shop where tailor-made clothes have been lovingly laboured over for years. But when her department store offers to turn her clothing creations into a brand, she has to choose between honouring the past and forging a future. Part of the Japanese Touring Film Programme.
Whilst this one isn’t strictly on International Women’s Day, we also have to give a mention to The Fits, screening the Sunday before. This brilliantly emotional and psychological coming-of-age drama, centres around 11 year old Toni, and explores the power, confidence and community of female boxing.
Rebecca Harris on Art and Breasts
We’re very excited to welcome artist Rebecca Harris for a talk about Storm In A B Cup, a body of work exploring the complex and multifaceted story of breasts, currently in development for Art Week Exeter in May.
Occupy The Airwaves
Courageous storytellers (and former Exeter Phoenix Associate Artists) Dreadnought South West are taking over your radio for International Women’s day with a host of guests. Tune into Phonic FM to hear what they’ve been up to, or join them from 9pm in our Cafe Bar for an informal social to follow up the day’s broadcasting.
Live Music To Support Victims of Domestic Abuse
From 8pm we’ll be hosting an amazing line-up of both local and touring artists, raising money for SAFE. The line up includes Chiyoda Ku, Kermes, Drawstring, Young Adventurers and Me Rex.
