Calling all you Grafters!

09 Feb 2016

People’s History Museum needs you to help document the changing workplace

‘Grafters’ is the new photographic exhibition at the People’s History Museum.

Curated by industrial photographer Ian Beesley, it documents working people’s opportunities to photograph their own lives from the Industrial Revolution onwards.

Alongside this exhibition, the museum is encouraging people to tweet photographs of them at work using #grafters, which may end up in the exhibition itself.

This, in particular, is a great opportunity to raise the profile of women in the workplace and women as part of the workforce. Women’s roles in society and the economy have changed dramatically in many ways and not so much in others.

So, if you’re a woman in the workplace, tweet your #grafters photograph and help us document this change!
