Intimate Tour of Breasts: A City Walking Tour

Artist, writer and breast cancer survivor, Claire Collison is your tour guide on this three-hour walk exploring multicultural mythologies surrounding breasts, and looking at their commodification throughout history to the present day - from religious martyrs to political activists, fine art to Page 3, nipple slip to slippery nipple. Engaging in conversations and activities along the way, and ending with a whistle-stop visit to Women Power Protest , you will be unravelling the implications of this on how women feel about their own breasts.

Claire Collison's practice is rooted in place and identity - the writer and artist as witness, flaneur and psycho-geographer: "There are landscapes we walk through, and those we carry within: I am interested in charting where these places converge." The Birmingham Intimate Tour of Breasts is part of an ongoing series which began in 2016 as part of the Walking Women festival in London.
