Rise Women, Rise
Artistic response to ‘Reclaiming Babel’ by Yolart
Rise Women, Rise is a dramatic narrative poem set in Liverpool and inspired by the mythical creature, the Liver Bird. Bella overlooks the sea, waiting for women to approach Liverpool from different walks of life. The rhythmic language moves and swells with the crashing of the waves, emphasising that women will move mountains to the city until their voices are heard.
