To honour International Women’s Day, creators Slutmouth (aka Bettie Hope) and Wild Lamb (aka Paige Livingstone), felt the urge to pool their forward-thinking ideas to curate their punchy exhibition Let Us Eat Cake, which will debut at new online space PBVArts from Monday 8th March.

Local, national and international female-identifying artists of a working class background are in their team, with the art upholding a booming voice demanding not just to be heard, but to be listened to with intent and respect. Bettie explains: “We are excited to introduce and showcase some fantastic female creatives from the North East and beyond. There’s wonderful momentum up here, and we aim to show the North for what it truly is: a powerhouse full of creatives!”

Paige adds: “Growing up working class and being female in one of the most deprived areas in the UK will, if nothing else, toughen you up and sharpen your wit, and that’s something that I see reflected a lot in my work and also the work of my favourite local artists.”

This collaborative curatorial debut will shine a light on the next generation of young, emerging talent from the region, with empowerment at the core of the dynamic artists involved.

Let Us Eat Cake takes place at PBVArts from Monday 8th March for four weeks
