Greenham Common Women Exhibition at Nottingham Women’s Centre: Tuesday 15th Oct, 12pm – 5pm

Greenham Common Women are touring UK with a pop-up exhibition and we’re delighted to announce they’re coming to Nottingham Women’s Centre between 12pm – 5pm on Tuesday 15th October.

The exhibition will showcase original photographs, archival materials, soundscapes created by artists based on oral testimonies and some wonderful Greenham music. All set in a Greenham-inspired tent, this exhibition really allows you to get an intimate look at the sights and sounds of the camp, gives voice to these radical women and asks you what change you want to see in the world.
