Join us at the Walker Art Gallery, World Museum, International Slavery Museum and Merseyside Maritime Museum, to celebrate International Women’s Day. We have a week-long programme of free events, focussing on the main day, Monday 8 March 2010.

From poetry to decorative arts, the events explore the important contribution that women have made to our culture. A highlight will be the unveiling of three new plaques on the Black Achiever’s Wall in the International Slavery Museum.

You can also drop into our fantastic exhibition, ‘The Rise of Women Artists’, that features paintings, textiles, sculptures and much more.

All events and exhibitions are free.
