Music & Liberation, an exhibition about Women’s Liberation Music Making in the UK (1970-1989), is being supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. 

Music & Liberation: Women’s Liberation Music Making in the UK, 1970-1989 will show how feminists used music as an activist tool to entertain and empower women during the 1970s and 1980s. It brings together for the first time a diverse collection of women’s cultural heritage to inspire and inform contemporary audiences about the politics of music making. 

The £32,100 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund was announced in January. It will be spent on a touring exhibition starting at the Butetown History & Arts Centre in Cardiff on 2 September 2012. It will then move on to Newcastle (October), Glasgow (November) and London (December). Full details of venues and touring dates will be announced when confirmed. 

The HLF grant will pay for the high quality digitisation of audio and audio-visual material including live performances, studio recordings, practices and TV appearances of Women’s Liberation music makers. A CD album of music included in Music & Liberation will be produced, and ten new oral histories collected. The music, films and oral histories will be available to watch and listen to at the exhibition. Ephemera and artefacts such as posters, songbooks, t-shirts, instruments and fliers will also be displayed.

Music & Liberation will draw on, and collect new material for, the Women’s Liberation Music Archive (http://womensliberationmusicarchive.wordpress.com), an online blog launched in May 2011 by Frankie Green and Dr Deborah Withers. Material collected as part of Music & Liberation will be deposited in the Glasgow Women’s Library to ensure they can be accessed by future generations. 

For further information about the project, and how to get involved, please contact:

Dear friends, just to let you know that not only The Raincoats will play at

A cool band we're also working with at Julie Tippex and the typical girls
might like quite well. They'll release soon a split EP with ESG !

The Kellies are interesting - I can definitely hear _Return of the  
Giant Slits_ and Delta 5 influences, and I see they got Dennis Bovell  
to produce.
