As part of Representation of the People: Act Groundwork Pro are hosting a series of discussions/events to celebrate 100 yrs since women achieved the right to vote and equal suffrage was acheived for men. We’ll be asking where are we now? as we continue conversations around gender equality and examine action in our art form

Join us on Wed 24th Jan 5.45 – 7.30 at Three Doors Up, (Queens Arcade) over a glass of wine and bite to eat for:

Hannah Buckley – We Are Now event: Celebrating intergenerational exchange and women.

Hannah’s event will introduce her practice, talk about her intergenerational project We Are Now and open up group brainstorming and discussion around its central questions and themes:

  • How do I create a space (and eventually performance) where adult / child and everything in between is equal? (ie. its not a something for children where adults can join in and visa versa).
  • How do I care for everyone’s needs but also challenge / explore / stay true to my artistic practice?
  • How do I care for everyone’s needs but move beyond social presumptions?
  • How can I be clear and also let things emerge?
  • How do I celebrate women and intergenerational exchange per-formatively/ through performance?

We Are Now is a work in progress intergenerational project by movement artist Hannah Buckley. It began in 2015, and came out of Hannah’s work with Accumulations, a collective of four artists/curators/academics in Manchester. We Are Now is an ongoing film series and will eventually be a live performance.

Hannah is also working with photographer Sara Teresa to document the project, with the intention of producing a We Are Now book.

All elements of We Are Now celebrate intergenerational exchange and women.
