womens design group walk tomorrow

This week I am really pleased to be setting off on another expedition with Manchester Women's Design Group on a very sociable Night Walk Wednesday December 14th 6.30pm, meet in Picadilly Gardens, by Queen Victoria's Statue in between Lever Street and Oldham Street. The walk will last no longer than an hour and will finish at Albert Square around 7.30pm so we can get a hot drink to warm us up!...

We are going on a short walk around Manchester City Centre to identify places which women might not feel comfortable, and also places where they do feel comfortable. We are doing this at Night to highlight the difference between daytime uses of the city and the night time. We want to look at lighting, buildings' uses and the street design. During the walk we will add our thoughts on to a map, this will help develop ideas for how to make Manchester a more gender friendly city.
