Join Words & Walks for a guided walking tour celebrating the untold stories of women in Birmingham. Explore the city through a new lens, as Words & Walks take you on an interactive tour, shining a light on the hidden voices of women, both past and present.
The walk is a response to Found Cities, Lost Objects: Women in the City curated by Lubaina Himid CBE.
The tour will be lead by Iris Bertz, Director of Bertz Associates and Poet Simone Word Smith, who has created a spoken word piece in response to research led by Emily Baldwin. The tour begins and ends at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, and travels through the city centre highlighting the stories of a diverse library of women, from Suffragettes, artists and musicians, through to the modern everyday women who are under-celebrated, yet consistently make a difference.
After the tour, there will be an opportunity to join the tour leaders in the Edwardian Tearooms to exchange ideas - refreshments available to buy at the Tearooms.
The walk will take about 90-100 minutes, please wear comfortable shoes.
