Join us at the Brynmor Jones Library on Friday 8 September for the launch of the ‘Turning The Tide’ exhibition, a dance-performance-film project exploring the role of women in the renewable energy and offshore wind sector.

Through an exciting partnership with the ‘Women’s Movement 100’, the Hull chapter of the ‘Turning the Tide’ film and exhibition aims to challenge the traditional view of industry by making it beautiful as well as functional. ‘Turning the Tide’ is about telling a better story about this new source of power on our shores – building together a more attractive narrative.

The aim: to attract more women into this new, exciting, revolutionary industry and research area and show the opportunities to engender real change. Through the medium of dance, our 15 ‘angels of the north’ express the power, beauty, strength and potential of the offshore wind industry – through movement and art. We are standing on the shoulders of those who fought so hard for equality 100 years ago. We must ensure that we continue to fight for true equality at all levels – join us and work with us to work differently, to make a change for good.

To whet your appetite, take a look at the Hull Turning The Tide trailer.

This will be the second chance to see this beautiful short film, and exhibition with an opportunity to talk with artists, scientists and all involved.

So put on your best outfit and join us for the launch and a drinks reception at the Brynmor Jones Library, University of Hull Campus on the evening of 8 September; anytime between 5:30pm and 9:00pm.

Tickets are free but places are limited so please reserve your place here.

The exhibition will run each day until the 20th October 2023, no need to book.
