During September, to mark the anniversary of the death of Mary Wollstonecraft, our National Lottery Heritage Fund supported
is hosted by NEWINGTON GREEN MEETING HOUSE
After a year of various events and activities these are responses to our participants’ research into the writings and letters of Mary Wollstonecraft. Famously the author of A Vindication Of The Rights of Woman and a radical, a dissenter and a champion of the education of girls.
A Hackney Heroine who lived in Hoxton, had a school in Newington Green, worshipped at the Unitarian Church (now Newington Green Meeting House) and was married and first buried in Old St Pancras Church in King’s Cross.
Our first “public” event during the pandemic with a careful and socially distanced planning and setting up in August and filmed by Steve .
Many of the pieces have been created during the Covid-19 pandemic and come out of online workshops and one to one socially distanced meetings with the researchers and artists.
Our thanks to Newington Green Meeting House that have made this installation possible by welcoming us as their first 360 virtual event.
