The Pink Medicine Project - Volunteers Required

Is Emily Pankhurst one of your heroes?
Do you think the Suffragettes had real girl power?
Do you believe that women are equal in today's society?
Do you have an interest in acting, drama and theatre?

On March 8 2008, a conference that looks back at the local women's liberation movement in Bolton and ask where the feminist movement is now. It will take place as part of International Women's Week.

activ8 have been asked to re-create a piece of street theatre called The Pink Medicine Show' from the 1960's that aimed to highlight women's issues.

activ8 will also attempt to create a new contemporary piece of theatre exploring how women feel about their position in today's world.

activ8 are looking for a small group of creative young women who wish to take part in this project.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Work with activ8's drama workers in a professional theatre
  • Learn more about how to create a new piece of theatre from scratch
  • Improve or develop new acting skills
  • Have the opportunity to perform to local audiences
  • Explore issues surrounding 'women's liberation'
  • Play a part in this exciting lottery funded conference

The project will begin in January 2008 and is likely to take the form of once weekly, evening rehearsals. To become part of this project, or to find out more, call activ8 on 01204 556501 or email
