Hello everyone,

I wanted to let you know about a few ways you can keep in touch with updates about Music & Liberation, an exhibition about Women’s Liberation Music Making in the UK (1970-1989), that is touring the UK this autumn.

Firstly, a new blog - http://music-and-liberation.tumblr.com/

and our twitter account: @music_liberate

Facebook event page: http://www.facebook.com/events/196908370424852/ (please invite your friends!)

Hope to see you at the exhibition - more information about the tour is below.

Please do spread the word if you are interested in the exhibition, and get in touch if you have an idea for a tie-in event.

Very best

debi

Music & Liberation: Women’s Liberation Music Making in the UK, 1970-1989 shows how feminists
used music as an activist tool to entertain and empower women during the 1970s and 1980s.
Featuring the work of Jam Today, the Northern Women’s Liberation Rock Band, Feminist Improvising
Group, the Fabulous Dirt Sisters, Abandon Your Tutu, the Mistakes and many more, the exhibition
brings together a diverse collection of women’s cultural heritage. Music & Liberation will inspire and inform contemporary audiences about the politics of music making.

The exhibition will be touring to the following venues:

·      9-27 September, Butetown History & Arts Centre, 4 Dock Chambers, Cardiff, CF10 5AG

·      1-15 October, Bureau ‘off-site’, Three Piccadilly Place, Manchester. M1 3BN

·      29 October–24 November, Glasgow Women’s Library, 15 Berkeley Street, Glasgow G3 7BW

·      30 November-13 January 2013, Space Station Sixty Five, Building One, 373 Kennington Road,
        London SE11 4PS

All venues are wheelchair accessible, and an RNIB Penfriend will be available to facilitate
access for visually impaired visitors.

The exhibition will showcase rare ephemera and artefacts such as posters, songbooks, t-shirts, instruments and fliers. Visitors will be able to watch films, interact with installations, look at photos and,
of course, listen to music. This is a unique opportunity to listen to unreleased recordings of practices, live performances and studio tracks from mostly unknown women musicians.

Ten oral histories, which have been collected especially for the project, will also be available to listen
to and watch. Music & Liberation: A Compilation of Music from the Women’s Liberation Movement will
be on sale at the exhibition.

A series of events will accompany Music & Liberation, including participating in IMPRINT, an experimental women’s art festival taking place in Manchester and Newcastle in October (http://www.thebricoleurspress.org/imprint/).

Please check the website and twitter for further
details of all events and project updates.

Music & Liberation is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. It is based on the Women’s Liberation Music Archive (http://womensliberationmusicarchive.wordpress.com), an online archive launched in May 2011 by Frankie Green and Dr Deborah Withers.

For further information about the exhibition and accompanying events please contact
Project Coordinator, Dr Deborah Withers. [log in to unmask] +447940 320 113
