We took our Common Ground exhibition to Nottingham!

From the 12th – 18th February, we had a week of exciting events at Nottingham Broadway including our Common Ground exhibition!

Visitors were invited to hang out in our Greenham tent listening to a specially created soundscape of sounds and stories from the peace camp and interviews with Greenham Women, chat to public herstorians about how Greenham impacted them and look around the gallery at animations, banners, wearable art, images from Greenham as well as portrait photos of the Greenham Women today. Take a look inside the exhibition in this video here!

Workshops and discussions took place from Monday – Friday with web-weaving, Judith Baron talking about her photography of Greenham and Aldermaston Women’s Peace Camps, the Wondrous Women performing their invisible theatre piece and local feminist archive sharing ephemera. Our fantastic Greenham Cabaret was held on Saturday night where performers from near and far shared the stories of the women who were at Greenham Common as we celebrated the creativity used in the art of peaceful protest.

The action-packed week ended with a sold-out screening of ‘Women Against the Bomb’, Sonia Gonzalez’s prize-winning look at the impact of the Greenham Women, the first all-female peace camp, reflected through interviews and footage from women who took action and never looked back.

We’ll be hosting more Common Ground events this May in Truro and Golant – see you there?
