14-18 NOW connects people with the First World War commissioning today's artists to open up new perspectives on the present as well as the past. 100 years after the first women in the UK were afforded the vote, here's how The First World War changed forever the position of women in society.
Exactly a century after (some) British women were first given the right to vote, Kate Prince, one of the UK’s leading choreographers, celebrates the life of Sylvia Pankhurst.
A dynamic modern musical fusing dance, hip hop, soul and funk, Sylvia sheds new light on a remarkable figure at the heart of the suffrage movement.
Debris Stevenson invites you to step into a technicolour world where music, dance and spoken word collide, and discover how grime allowed her to redefine herself.
A century after Parliament gave the first women the right to vote, Selina Thompson’s provocative new work turns this moment of democratic history on its head. Sortition is produced by and with Britons under the age of 30 who have never voted and have no intention of voting – ever.
14-18 NOW is a five-year programme of extraordinary arts experiences connecting people with the First World War. Working with arts and heritage partners all across the UK, we commission new artworks from leading contemporary artists, musicians, designers and performers, inspired by the period 1914-18.
