Part of Calm Down, Dear

THINK OF A WOMAN WHO INSPIRES YOU. GOT IT? WE WANT TO KNOW WHO SHE IS & WHY… 

Phenomenal People is a new project created by Fuel to celebrate inspirational women, and their contribution to society, in a playful and interactive way. The world is full of inspiring women who are brave, beautiful and strong; who have made a difference and whose stories have never been told. 

As part of Fuel’s 10th birthday season we are presenting live performances by brilliant artists about phenomenal people who have inspired them in a special indoor garden on tour around the UK. In each location the garden will be created by local and international artists including renowned Artistic Director of Graeae and the opening ceremony of the Paralympics, Jenny Sealey, artist and designer Sophia Clist, and stand-up performer Rachel Mars. Alongside this we have launched an online space, a digital garden, where you can tell us who you think deserves recognition, find out about other extraordinary women, and join a conversation with King’s academics, artists and many others. 

We hope you’ll join us in person or online to hear and share your own stories of inspirational women. 

There will be a BSL interpreted performance on Saturday 11 October.
