Creating & Campaigning – Virtual Debate
28th June 2021 09:45 - 11:45 GMT
Who should we commemorate – and how? A timely debate around statues, organised by Swansea University. I'll be adding my voice to a diverse panel as we unpack this knotty question, and arguing why a statue of RSPB founder Emily Williamson will be a catalyst for change (not just a perching post for pigeons).

30th June 2021 18.30 - 19.30 GMT
A special book-signing on the eve of the Plumage Act Centenary, and before the unveiling on July 1 of four bronze maquettes honouring RSPB founder Emily Williamson (pictured), in Fletcher Moss Park. Etta Lemon - The Woman Who Saved the Birds brings to life how Emily's Victorian campaign snowballed, gathering more eco feminists as it went.
FROM 5PM at 6 Warburton Street, Didsbury, Manchester M20 6WA. 0161 4457629.
