Did you know that the women of Dagenham, Barking and Havering changed the world in 1968?

The Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch is looking for 12 young women aged 16-18 from the Dagenham, Barking and Havering areas to take part in our exciting new project: Women’s Stories of Ford Dagenham.

This initiative will culminate in a wide-reaching, multi-faceted exhibition about the lives of these incredible local women who changed history.

Volunteers will participate in fun weekly workshops throughout October, where they will meet and interview the women and listen to their stories. They will create a visual and audio exhibition inspired by those stories, enabling anyone from East London and Essex to see, hear and learn from their creation.

Anyone interested in being part of this project should send Lucy Curtis, the Facilitator for the initiative, an e-mail about why they would like to take part (no more than a paragraph) to dagenhamstories@gmail.com – by 6pm on Monday 19 September. They should also include a contact telephone number.
