A city-wide audio storytelling experience that uncovers the stories of women usually hidden from history

HERSTORY is a city-wide audio storytelling experience that uncovers the stories of women usually hidden from history. These are the real stories of Brighton-based women as they live through the COVID-19 pandemic. Insightful and inspiring, HERSTORY carves out a space where women can be heard. We invite you to discover and listen to a trail of stories that celebrate the truth and power of women all around us. 

Scan a unique QR code at listening posts in Hangleton, Moulsecoomb, Whitehawk and Central Brighton to discover the stories and portraits of women from Brighton. 

If you don’t have access to a smart phone or tablet, there will be hub locations around Brighton where you can listen to the stories. ​The portraits will also guide you to the nearest listening locations.

Find out more information about the writers, storytellers and performers, ​and locations across Brighton at www.herstorytrail.com.
