Announcing Stature project Manchester town hall exhibition dates

We’re excited to announce exhibition dates for our Stature project in Manchester Town Hall.

24 February – 9 March 2014

Come along to see Helen Davies’ cracking crochet masks installed on the marble man busts, complete with Jenny White’s biographies of the inspiring women we’re honouring.

We hope our celebration of social justice campaigner Esther Roper will help put some ‘L’ into February’s LGBT history month; and 8 March marks International Women’s Day 2014.

October Stature project progress update

Our craft queen Helen Davies has been busy crocheting a new batch of masks designed to fit snuggly over the town hall man busts.  Here’s a pic of work in progress masks of: race relations leader Louise Da-Cocodia; theatre patron Annie Horniman; social justice campaigner Esther Roper; and mathematician politician Dame Kathleen Ollerenshaw.

Meanwhile history buff Jenny White has been using Manchester City Library’s online newspaper archive to learn more about amazing alp-cycling theatre patron Annie Horniman.
