Around the Match

A new commission for Wigan & Leigh’s hosting of the UEFA European Women's Championship by WE ARE WILLOW
creative studio & art collective, celebrating the areas rich history & cultural diversity.

A NEW TEAM, FILM DOCUMENTARY & ACCOMPANYING MEMORABILIA that offers fresh insight into the women of football in and around the match - the female voices that make the game on and off the pitch. The work will engage with new audiences sharing histories, bringing generations together, exploring those special moments associated with the game that affect people long after the final whistle is blown.
