Out Of The Doll’s House: What did the women do during the First World War?

Following last year’s successful Women’s Pop-Up Museum, Hastings Museum, in conjunction with Women’s Voice, is running an exciting new project that aims to explore all aspects of women’s lives during the First World War. Based at the museum, the project seeks to recreate women’s wartime lives through creative writing and artwork. It kicks off on Tuesday 7 July and will ultimately lead to a pop-up exhibition at the museum in mid-October. Project co-ordinator Ann Kramer explains what it’s all about.
