- Every year, Dangerous Ideas Southampton marks International Women’s Day by putting on an event and sharing news of gatherings organised by others. Sisters Act! is on 8 March at 7pm at Solent Showcase Gallery with artist Sarah Filmer. Full listings of loads of other #PressforProgress events are available here.
There are also a number of arts-related events taking place in the city this month, co-organised by Southampton Collective Director Rebecca Kinge:
- Southampton Art in Health Forum Thurs 15 March 1pm – all about our environment and our health, and art’s role in making things better. This will be a workshop where we can all pitch in our ideas. All are welcome, whatever your background, whatever you experience. Come and meet others who are interested in art and health. In conjunction with Healthwatch Southampton and SoCo Music Project.
- Join us at the RSA Engage Southampton event on 26 March 6pm. The RSA enriches society through ideas and actions. This event is hosted as part of Solent Showcase Gallery’s Stand Together participatory exhibition. A mix of ideas will be pitched with the theme of “standing together to address 21st century challenges”. The pitches will be followed by an opportunity for you to ask questions, find out more from the people driving the ideas forward, and volunteer your support.
