The Forgotten Women of Wakefield

Forgotten Women Wake

About

The Forgotten Women of Wakefield project is the creative mission of Dream Time Creative that aims to empower the community — and in particular the women’s voice — via the concrete goal of achieving Blue Plaque Parity for Wakefield’s historic women.

The pursuit of this goal has allowed Dream Time Creative to offer workshops upskilling the women of today and the wider community in things like historical research, crafting, poetry and more, and putting those skills to use uncovering the lives of forgotten women.

This ten year project is now expanding its remit with the help of its many artistic and cultural partners in the city of Wakefield, and by doing so hopes to contribute a legacy of cooperation that serves the women’s voice and ensures parity not just in blue plaques, but in every sphere of life.
