Stories of finding freedom with Women of Coventry
By Dawinder Bansal
An invitation to the Women of Coventry to share your unexpected and fantastic stories of finding freedom.
Through this city-wide call out, award-winning artist Dawinder Bansal will find 150 women to be part of a major new exhibition at the Mead Gallery in May 2022 entitled Curious Objects.
Inspired by George Eliot’s seminal novel Middlemarch, the exhibition will celebrate the voices, courage and curiosity of women and the surprising ways in which they have attained independence.
Curious Objects will mark 150 years since the publication of Middlemarch and the finale of City of Culture at Warwick Arts Centre.
If you live or work in Coventry and would like to share your story, head over to the Warwick Arts Centre website to tell us about an object that for you, represents a moment or memory of finding your freedom.
Closing date for submissions: Monday 1st November 2021
