Event description

Description

Solus and the City is a project consisting of the construction of a small 'Solitude Shed' – a structure based on rural mountain bothies built on an urban site in London. Accompanying the structure will be a collection of material written from female perspectives exploring themes of solitude, sanctuary, stability and individuality.

Women are paradoxically expected to provide solidity, structure and sanctuary whilst they disproportionately experience unstable positions in housing, work and society. In response, the shed will prompt participants to consider the necessity and availability of physical shelter and time alone in urban environments whilst showcasing women's’ experiences of [or lack of] solitude, self identity and self reliance through writing. The shed, complete with writing and a depiction of the building process, will be ready for all to view throughout June.

On 9th June, from 12 o'clock we invite the public to get together and explore the project and its themes through discussion, writing and traditional women's work songs. Together, we will celebrate the women of the city's past, present and future.
