Do you have an object that tells your life story? Listen into women talking about objects that are important to them. Project ‘Object Eve’ was started by Annemarie Bala and Nicky Wood at The Women’s Centre Cornwall as a way for women to introduce themselves by sharing a story about an object that they care about. It is about the experience of being heard. Interacting with people for the first time can be daunting, but by using an object it takes off pressure and provides a fresh insight into someone’s life. Annemarie and Nicky share their objects with with feminist researchers Dr Katie Natanel, Dr Charlotte Saunders, Roba Al-Salibi and Asha Ali with support from Radio St. Austell Bay.
The programmes were made with Stellaria Media and broadcast on Bath Radio, Soundart Radio (Totnes), Radio St Austell Bay and Devon Stream in a celebratory radio festival on November 27th & 28th.
