[Constellations hosts ‘Nasty Women’ Charity Event]
[Global Movement Nasty Women will have its debut charity art exhibition in Liverpool during international women’s weekend]
‘Nasty Women’, an artistic movement which started in the US and has taken various UK cities by storm, now has its own Liverpool team and will be showcasing its first Liverpool event. This event will be held during International Women’s weekend 9th-11th March at Constellations within the Baltic Triangle. All the proceeds of the weekend will be donated to Wirral Women and Children’s Aid, a local refuge for women and children who are fleeing domestic abuse.
The event will be centred around an art exhibition that is then accompanied by musical entertainment and workshops throughout the weekend. All the art that has been selected and donated for sale at the event has been created by international and local female identifying artists. Nasty Women Liverpool acknowledges how the art world can be perceived as male-centric and is pursuing equality while making a positive impact on their local community. There is also be a ‘Nasty Women Liverpool’ donations page for people donating to the Wirral Women and Children’s Aid charity but are unable to attend the event. (Link at bottom of document)

Our charity event is an ideal platform to raise money and provide a platform for local and international female identifying artists to showcase their talent in our beautiful cultural city”.
Constellations, Liverpool, have also emphasized their excitement to be hosting the weekend and have scheduled various music acts including Jessica Ray and a drumming performance by Katumba for the Launch night 9th March.

Charity events like this are culturally and socially significant for women in our city.”
