Saturday Girl

Leeds Bra Burning

Saturday 8 March 2014

On Saturday 8 March, a large paper-mache bra will be walked from Broadcasting Place to Gallery Munro House at 11:00 and set fire to as a symbolic and playful act in recognition of International Women’s Day. A giant, joyous beacon that links and acknowledges the concerns, struggles and hopes of women in history with those of today, marking the continued interest in feminism and the fight for equality.

The bra will be built (and burnt) by Leeds Metropolitan University Graphic Arts and Design students with the help of maker Tony Wade from Faceless Company.

Joining the procession will be March in March, a performance initiated by Harold Offeh with a group of students from Leeds Metropolitan University. The newly devised piece will explore the history of visual and performance culture in the international women’s movement. Looking at how the call for liberation, equality and suffrage has been communicated through protest actions, imagery, movement and song. The March will culminate in a communal gathering at The Gallery at Munro House.
