Are you someone who would like to see more arts projects created and delivered by women?  Would you like to support womens voices through arts and heritage?  Then please, support Dreadnought South West.

As a company, engaging with the arts is an excellent way of promoting your brand to new customers and gaining visibility throughout the South West, one of the UK’s most vibrant and creative regions. And what better way to do that than by sponsoring Dreadnought South West’s new project Oxygen.  

As an individual, supporting this type of work benefits both your local and wider community, creating a rich variety of cultural opportunities for people to work in in order to find their own voices.

Oxygen celebrates the distance travelled by South West women along the route from Land’s End to the final rally, which took place in Hyde Park on 26 July 1913, and examines the complex arguments of militant action against peaceful protest against the backdrop of the fight for the right to vote for women and working class men.

To date, Dreadnought South West Association have received generous support from a range of partners, including Arts Council England, Exeter City Council, Fawcett Devon, The Elmgrant Trust and Bath & North East Somerset Council.  However, we still need further financial help to ensure the project reaches all the groups we had first set out to benefit from the tour of this play, which will celebrate the centenary of the Great Suffrage Pilgrimage of 1913. 

This current project by DSWA seeks to enable people from all walks of life, with little or low access to theatre and those still within education, to see either the whole play or episodes from the piece.  The pricing structure seeks to encourage rather than discourage people to attend.  Indeed, some performances (episodes) will be put on for free in public locations.

Our current sponsors and funders have been incredibly generous so far in supporting the project. However, we still need to find some final support to ensure the total success of the tour.  We hope you feel you can help with even the smallest level of support.
