DC1 Gallery,67-69 Seaside Road, BN21 3PL Eastbourne, East Sussex
Open 11am-4pm every day except closed on Monday.
To launch the website for our Historical Women of Eastbourne Heritage Project, and take it out to the community, WayfinderWoman is having an exhibition of research, photos,models, interactive exhibits and interesting artifacts in the purpose built DC1 Gallery on Seaside Road, Eastbourne. There will be plenty to see and do, so do come along and discover the hidden history of Eastbourne women.
Women have often been overlooked when it comes to recording historical events. Of the 21 statues, memorials and plaques in Eastbourne, only one celebrates a female (author Lucie Attwell) and when Eastbourne celebrated its 700th anniversary as a market town, there was no mention of the role of women in its evolution. Now is the time to highlight women of influence in Eastbourne in the lead up to the forthcoming anniversary of female emancipation in the UK in 1918.
Women of Eastbourne aims to inspire the women of Eastbourne by celebrating and highlighting the work of the towns’ most prolific women from history.
We also want to encourage the Eastbourne women of today to research their own ancestors.

The website is an ongoing project.

There is no charge to visit the exhibition. All welcome!
