Ikon Slow Boat, canalside near Bank restaurant (opposite Arena Birmingham)
Meet MotherShip Projects, a community arts organisation working in Ladywood, on board Slow Boat to hear about their work with refugee women and their families. This autumn, MotherShip collaborate with artists Lucy Orta and Aimee Bourne and Birmingham City University students to design a banner using motifs and slogans derived from the Suffragette Movement and the experiences of women in Birmingham today.
Looping the Loop (2017–2019) takes place between the canal and community spaces in Birmingham’s Ladywood district. During Autumn 2018, Lucy Orta and MotherShip join together with local communities to create a processional banner based on personal experiences.
Looping the Loop, is supported by Arts Council Strategic Touring, Michael Marsh Charitable Trust, W.A. Cadbury Trust, Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council, Canal & River Trust and Grantham Yorke Trust.
