There are more than 300 heritage plaques in Norwich and only 25 recognise the lives and achievements of women. we wanted to do something about that and so in May 2019 we staged a pop up guerrilla art project. Under cover of darkness, and dressed as Rosie the Riveter, we erected alternative blue plaques on significant buildings in the city. The plaques remember and celebrate some of those women.
In November we launched a crowdfunder campaign to takes Rosie’s Plaques on tour. The crowdfunder exceeded the target. We will be going on tour in spring 2021.
You can see our crowdfunder video here.
