Grrrl Power Liverpool emphasises the importance of encouraging creative women to work together. The initiative has been created in response to the problems and potential pitfalls faced by women in the arts.
The group feel women are hugely underrepresented in comparison to their male counterparts within this sector, and their aim to address this imbalance by encouraging and developing safe environments in Liverpool where women have the capacity to thrive creatively.
Friday 5th August sees the launch of the groups first exhibition alongside performances from DJ duos JELL and Faux Queens. The exhibition is curated from women artists from across the UK who responded to the brief ‘Women: where do you find yourself in the arts?’
On Sunday 7th August the discussions continue in the main warehouse with free to attend workshops from feminist digital platform Queen of the Track, exploring the barriers that women face in cultural production, and culture magazine XXY, investigating the inequalities that Women of Colour face in the arts. Grrrl Power Liverpool want to create an outlet for women’s creativity and also a chance for all creative women of Liverpool to network, build support and grow together creatively.
