Join Rachel Carter and members of the Legacy Makers group as they share the creative journey and inspiration behind the new sculpture for Nottingham, Standing In This Place. Over their four year long journey they have delved into the cotton story and the contributions of women to our city. Listen as they share their story, poetry and tales of historic women.

This event forms part of a weekend celebration of the Windrush generation

Standing In This Place is an arts and heritage project by sculptor Rachel Carter in collaboration with the Legacy Makers group formed in 2014 by Bright Ideas Nottingham and the collaborative community-academic Global Cotton Connections project.

It looks to highlight the contributions and connections between white mill workers and black enslaved women uprooted to the Americas, showing how their stories and histories are connected by cotton, sorrow, strength and resilience.
