International Women's Day: Exploring maternal and artistic strategies towards a more peaceful world
On behalf of the Mothers’ Day Project Sarah Black and Esther Wilson would like to officially invite you to attend our launch event held at Liverpool Hope University in conjunction with the Desmond Tutu Centre for War and Peace Studies and the Cornerstone Festival.
The purpose of this event is to bring together artists, mothers, fathers, activists and academics that are interested in exploring the maternal, art and multidisciplinary approaches to peace making. The initial starting point for this event is the Mothers’ Day Proclamation written by Julia Ward-Howe (1870), a call to arms for women across the globe.
“We women of one country will be too tender of those of another country to allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs. From the bosom of the devastated earth a voice goes up with our own. It says “Disarm, Disarm! The sword of murder is not the balance of justice.” (Ward-Howe 1870).
The event will consist of a film and performance installation by Esther Wilson, Saran Black and Andrew Frizell (11.30 am, COR108).
Performance Lecture by International artist Shira Richter and presentation by Esther Wilson and Sarah Black.
Round table discussion with Dr Lena Simic, Dr Kate Mattocks, Rev Canon Ellen Loudon, Rosalind Howell, Esther Wilson and Sarah Black, chaired by Prof Victor Merriman.
