Curated by the brilliant Invisible Dust, ‘Under Her Eye: Women and Climate Change’, is an international Summit and Arts Festival that will explore and celebrate the role of women taking action on climate change, as part of the 2018 Suffrage Centenary.
As the UN Special Envoy on Climate Change Mary Robinson asserted: ‘the challenges of climate change cannot be solved without empowering women’. Throughout the day a range of panel talks, in-conversations, workshops and performances will engage, provoke and inspire on this topic.
