The 2017 edition of Wonder Women, produced by Creative Tourist, takes place between 2-12 March. A 10-day celebration of creative-feminist-activism will animate the city of Manchester, with over 35 individual events making up this year’s diverse lineup.
The festival’s official launch event was Making The Strange Familiar with Instigate Arts at Manchester Art Gallery. Other highlights across the ten days include Dolly Mixtures – a day of feminist theatre performance at The Royal Exchange; a screening of Rebel Dykes at HOME; an in-conversation at Working Class Movement Library about the experiences of black women; a focus on well-being in partnership with SICK! Festival and The Lowry, and a script-in-hand reading of a new play at People’s History Museum that will be researched and written during the festival week.
