The So & So Arts Club
How We Got Here
This event has now finished.
In the lead up to the We Are Here Festival, the So & So Arts club presents How We Got Here, an evening of extraordinary and unexpected stories told by women in the middle of their lives and at the top of their game.
We Are Here is a curated exploration, documentation, and celebration of the lives, achievements, journeys, and stories of women over fifty from all walks of life and from all over the world. Through a website, YouTube channel, podcasts, events, and talks – all documented – we will create a living history, bringing to life the experiences of these women, whilst chronicling the changes in their culture and worlds.
We will give voice to the everyday as well as the extraordinary, be they artists, industry giants, waitresses, inventors, politicians, housewives, mothers, grandmothers, farmers, astronauts, mechanics, medics. These women tell us how they’ve arrived where they are, and how they are shaping both their own environment, and the world’s future. As an enormous, too-often-untapped resource, these women are role models to younger generations, their hard-won wisdom can start to mend the world—and we want to share the knowledge and richness of their collective and individual experiences while making a lasting tribute to it.
So and So Arts Club mini festival runs at So and so Arts Club HQ, May 7-10 featuring a full programme of artistic events by and for women over 50.
