A Woman's Place is a contemporary arts, heritage and educational project by Lucy Day and Eliza Gluckman that aims to question and address the contemporary position of women in our creative, historical and cultural landscape. 

As part of the National Trust's Women and Power programme A Woman's Place is working with Knole House and 6 artists to create an exhibition of artworks that shine a light on historical women's voices, marking 100 years since the Representation of the Peoples Act that gave women the vote in the UK.

Quiet Down There and artist Alinah Azadeh have developed a creative 'day-off' for women called 'One Day' which is based on the themes that are central to A Woman's Place.  One Day is a free, day-long retreat, a creative workshop using playful discussion, creative writing, drawing and shared reflection to explore a 'sense of place' and uncover the talents and stories of women in Gravesend in 2018. 

One Day will be a relaxed, safe, supported space giving participants a chance to focus on themselves for a day.  Lunch, refreshments and art materials are all provided and no skill or experience is necessary.  The dates for One Day are: 

Monday 23 April, 10am-3pm at The Gr@nd-open to all mothers

Tuesday 24 April, 10am-3pm at LV21- open to all women

Wednesday 25 April, 10am-3pm at LV21-open to all women
