In response to Virginia Woolf’s feminist text, we called out to women artists to document those spaces in which they work or find inspiration.
This archival display at Zellij Arts offers a collective exploration of the challenges or opportunities of finding and “making space” as women artists, particularly those who are journeying or displaced.
The Travelling Heritage Bureau is a co-research project and supportive network with and for international women artists based in the North- West of England. The Bureau is a space of resistance, creativity and inclusion, a space for women artists including refugees, exiles, those seeking asylum and other migrant women with direct experiences of journeying or displacement.
The Bureau aims to ensure the arts practice and cultural heritage of international women visual artists is identified, documented and shared.
Project managed by Digital Women’s Archive North (DWAN)- a Manchester based arts and heritage organisation supporting women’s practice and addressing social inequalities.
