Oh Woman!

After briefly toying with the title Oh Womxn, Manchester Royal Exchange has settled on Oh Woman for a celebration by six innovative artists creating audio tributes to the women that inspire them.

To mark International Women’s Day, the Exchange has commissioned Greater Manchester-based artists Eliyana Evans, Nana-Kofi Kufuor, Gemma Langford, Channique Sterling-Brown, Rebecca Swarray and Becky Wilkie to develop original audio experiences.

Each will work closely with illustrator Hannah McClennan-Jones to create a visual world for their work.

The commissions will be shared across the theatre’s web site and social media channels this Monday, Wednesday and Friday, March 8, 10, 12.
