Join me on 8 March 2020 at 1pm Parliament Square at the statue of Millicent Fawcett to march and celebrate International Women’s Day with Performance Artist Michelle Baharier AKA MichelleDuchamp, Michelle Anglo and @dyslxicRant on twitter or @bahariermichelle on Instagram

Be your own personification of a woman who inspires you and perform with me to make this a day to remember

I am inviting people to join me by developing characters for the walk and to create their own women’s manifesto? If you want to join in or need more information contact me at mbfcsra@gmail.com

The walk will be a psychogeographical journey that will explore the voices of women such as Boudicca, Coade,  the Pankhursts, Nightingale,  Seacole, Women activists’ and artists Araniello and Disabled Avant-Garde not forgetting those who built the Ladies Bridge at Waterloo.

The procession will end at the Southbank Centre and join International Women’s Day celebrations there.

Weekly meetings will be held on Tuesdays: 11, 18, 25 February and 3 March from 5.30- 6.30pm at the Concrete Cafe in Queen Elizabeth Hall SE1 8XT .

There will also be meetings on Fridays: 14, 21, 28 and 6 March from 11am – 1pm at the Live Art Development Agency, The Garrett Centre, 117A Mansford Street, London E2 6LX. Even if you cannot make the meetings please contact me at mbfcsra@gmail.com if you are interested and would like to get involved.

There will also be additional meetings for homeless people and those living in the Blue in Bermondsey.

Think about subverting Thatcher or come as Maleficent and make this a piece of participation.

All welcome I have a very small amount of funding and might be able to pay for coffee and some travel within London on the day you are all welcome
