Event description

Description

Join us at this unique exhibition where all art works will be for sale, and walk away with your very own original work of art, all in support of a great cause!

Nasty Women UK is a FREE art exhibition and weekend of talks, comedy, spoken word, live music and workshops in support of women’s rights charity End Violence Against Women. The exhibition includes 2D work, sculpture, sound installations, street art, performance, political baked goods and an immersive art installation where you can create your own artwork in Virtual Reality. The exhibition also includes a VR experience that re-creates instances of sexism and street harassment and aims to give you a visceral understanding of what it’s really like to be attacked in the street or on public transport just because you are a woman.

The exhibition is free to attend, and all artworks are for sale, with prices ranging from £5 to £500. All proceeds will be donated End Violence Against Women, a leading coalition of specialist women’s support services, researchers, activists, survivors and NGOs working to end violence against women and girls in all its forms.
