International Women’s Day: Celebrating Dorothy

International Slavery Museum, Royal Albert Dock

Wed Mar 8 2023 at 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Writing on the Wall, in collaboration with National Museums Liverpool, are proud to announce “Celebrating Dorothy”: a special International Women’s Day event on Wednesday 8th March, honouring the life and work of Dorothy Kuya, in what would have been her 90th birthday month.

Dorothy Kuya was a Liverpool-born black antiracist campaigner and active feminist who fought all of her adult life for social justice, women and children’s rights.

During the 1950s, Dorothy became an early member of the National Assembly of Women, and would go on to become General secretary and later vice-chair of the organisation during the 1980s. It was as vice-chair of the NAW that Dorothy began to put pressure on the group to diversify its membership. With a view to empowering Black women, Dorothy would go on to encourage women from the Liverpool 8 would to join the NAW.

The Dorothy Kuya archive project team have been working with Dorothy’s extensive collection of papers and publications since last October, cataloguing them for preservation and future use.

In ‘Celebrating Dorothy’, guests will have the opportunity to browse our pop-up feminist library of texts selected from Dorothy’s large collection of books.

Alongside the pop-up feminist library, we will hold a ‘Dorothy Kuya living library’ offering the chance to have a conversation with some of the Liverpool 8 women who were members of the NAW; professional women working in the areas close to Dorothy’s heart, as well as our members of our project team.

Multi disciplinary artist Seleena Daye will also be in attendance, delivering a special zine making workshop for those moved and inspired by our ‘Celebrating Dorothy’.

Celebrating Dorothy will take place on International Women’s Day, Wednesday 8th March 5.30pm-8pm at the International Slavery Museum. Tickets are free but spaces are limited so booking is required.

This mindfulness session is particularly beneficial for anyone suffering with chronic pain, illness, fatigue, or any other long-term health condition with symptoms such as muscle pain, brain fog, low mood and anxiety.

Join us in short mindfulness and grounding practices to ease the stress and suffering associated with pain, fatigue and ill health.

Mindful movement practices will help to release built-up tension and self-compassion exercises provide a kinder, more effective way of dealing with difficulty, managing pain and improving well-being.

The session is based on the award winning Mindfulness for Health course delivered by Rachele Smith from Mindful People Community. Rachele is a Qualified Mindfulness Professional with The British Association of Mindfulness Based Approaches (BAMBA), delivering courses, workshops and retreats privately and to local governments and health departments internationally. She is experienced in working with clients suffering from long term stress and health conditions, as well as managing 15 years personal experience of injury and chronic pain with mindfulness.

Sci-Fi Shared Reading

Calderstones Mansion House, Calderstones Rd, Liverpool L18 3JB

Tuesdays, 4 - 5.30pm


Come and experience Shared Reading at the Mansion House which is home to the International Centre for Shared Reading.

A variety of stories and extracts, past and present found at the very limits of the human imagination. Stories that present other worlds, transcend our known laws, and ask how technology is changing us.

Here we find our deepest truths tested in the most unfamiliar landscapes. Great stories to explore together in places we never imagined we could end up. No prior reading experience is required and everyone is welcome. There is no pressure to read aloud – it's fine to just sit back, relax and listen. All of our Shared Reading groups are completely free. These sessions are drop-in, and have a maximum capacity of 8. Places will therefore be given on a first-come, first served basis each week.


More opportunities coming soon!
