Great Women of Brixton: Women who have changed our lives and shaped our community

Working with our Brixtonlive partners – Photofusion Uk and 198 Contemporary Arts & Learning, we are celebrating ‘Great Women of Brixton’ as part of their International Women’s Day Celebrations 2016.

We are asking people to come to the HustleBucks shop in Brixton Village / Brixton Market on Sunday 6 March between 12-4pm to nominate their ‘Great Woman of Brixton’.

The nomination can be for a friend, work colleague, family member or someone that you know about from Brixton’s history (Claudia Jones, Olive Morris, Annie McCall etc..).  The criteria to nominate is that you feel that the person has either changed your life or shaped your community – or both.  Professional Photographers from Photofusion will take your portrait and you’ll be able to pick up a printed copy the following week.o_4e0c00f4fc8beb9d_000

The images from the day will be released on International Women’s Day – Tuesday 8 March, in an online gallery at brixtonlive.com along with a short film of the event.
