Celebrate International Women’s Day


Take a tour of Evelina’s Georgian London

Described as a “landmark in the development of the novel of manners”, Evelina is the first novel written by a self-educated female author of enlightenment, Fanny Burney. It was first published in 1778. Follow Evelina’s journey around the streets of Georgian London while learning more about the themes running through the novel; how women of differing classes were treated, the unwritten rules of public engagements and how to behave in order catch a desirable Georgian husband.

See ten women artists making their mark in Cardiff 

This year the unique Jacobs Gallery Space, Cardiff, gives the ten artists an opportunity to experiment, using the space in a flexible and organic way to deal and play with the notion of what it means to be a woman artist in the 21st century. The participating artists, all based in South Wales are:

  •  Jacqueline Alkema
  • Adeola Dewis
  • Zoe Gingell
  • Penny Hallas
  • Rebecca Hammett
  • Leona Jones
  • Kay Keogh
  • Lucy Thomas
  • Sheila Vyas
  • Tessa Waite

Archives have a key role in helping communities and individuals to explore our shared history. This Free workshop uses archives to explore issues around suffrage, gender, democracy and offers a practical guide to demonstrate how online resources can be used.
