Uncertain Futures Interruptions

Inspired by the true accounts of women’s experiences of work and ageing gathered as part of the Uncertain Futures art and research project, 4 performance ‘interruptions’ will take place at Manchester Art Gallery. Come and eavesdrop on these intentional conversations performed by women over 50 revealing some of the key findings about the reality of work for women over 50.

Each performance will take place shortly after the hour at 11 am, 12 noon, 2 pm and 3 pm.
No need to book, just turn up.

Uncertain Futures is a project with American artist Suzanne LacyManchester Art Gallery, an Advisory Group of 14 Manchester women over 50 and researchers from the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University.

It seeks to address the inequalities facing Manchester women over 50 relating to work and worklessness, gaining an understanding of how interconnected issues of gender, age, labour, class, migration status, disability and race impact women’s paid and unpaid work. Uncertain Futures combines art, research and activism and aims to create real social change and affect social policy.
