This walking tour around Birmingham starts at Saint Agatha's Church, Stratford Road, Sparkbrook B11 1QT.

Artist, writer and breast cancer survivor, Claire Collison is your tour guide on this three-hour walk exploring multicultural mythologies surrounding breasts, and looking at their commodification throughout history to the present day - from religious martyrs to political activists, fine art to Page 3, nipple slip to slippery nipple. Engaging in conversations and activities en route, you will be unraveling the implications of all this on how women feel about their own breasts. This Birmingham Intimate Tour of Breasts is second in a series which began 2016 as part of the Walking Women festival in London.

This is a 3 hour walk which includes time spent in St Agatha’s Church and Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery. The walk also includes a short journey by bus.
