Since our first Women’s Conference in 2007, these events have focussed on the leadership of women, providing platforms for both young women and positive female role models to make their voices heard. Students are involved in designing, organising and hosting the conferences.
International Women’s Day (IWD) is a time of celebration and promotion of the of women’s united action for global equality and change. It is a global day of connecting all women around the world and inspiring them to achieve their full potential. IWD celebrates the collection power of women past, present and future!
Magic Me brings together young and older people for shared creative activity. Mulberry School has enjoyed ten years of these intergenerational arts projects at The Women’s Library. More recently the project has been held at Bishopsgate Institute and Tower Hamlets Local History Library. The projects have created artworks, performances, installations and events that celebrate the lives of women of all ages in the group, as well as stories from the amazing collections at the host venues.
In 2014 ‘Outspoken’ brought together Mulberry School students and local older women to work with Magic Me artists Sue Mayo and Anita McKenzie on a theatre and photography project. The group looked at the power and presence of women’s voices, and what it takes to speak out. Stimulated by archive material from Bishopsgate Institute, focussing on the voices of East End Women, the group created dramatic photographic images and made speeches about unfair treatment by friends, access to education worldwide, casual ageism, racism and everyday sexism.
