Inequalities in work affecting women over 50 in Manchester and Covid 19
Join our team for the launch and a virtual round-table discussion of an exciting and unique participatory art project in collaboration with women over in 50 in Manchester, due to be installed in the gallery in Spring 2020. Uncertain Futures is a cross-sectional art work aimed at raising public awareness of inequalities at work affecting diverse groups of women over 50 years in Manchester, exposed by the pandemic based on their own personal narratives. The event will hear from members of the Advisory Board of Uncertain Futures namely:
Dr Erinma Bell – Director: Carisma
Nadia Siddiqui – Director: Women’s Voices
Circle Steele – CEO: Wai Yin Society
Marie Greenhalgh – Director: Wythenshawe Good Neighbours
The virtual round-table will give a voice to these women to describe, debate and expose the inequalities they have faced in work during this time and to uncover the often overlooked strengths of these women. The event is organised by a team representing researchers from the University of Manchester (Elaine Dewhurst) and Manchester Metropolitan University (Sarah Campbell), the artist, Suzanne Lacy, University of Southern California and Ruth Edson from Manchester Art Gallery.
