To mark International Women's Day creative young people from Headliners Foyle have etched their words on chairs as part of a unique art installation in the city.

Young people researched the lives and work of historical women of note and inspired by their stories created haiku poems which they have etched onto the chairs.

The 'Talking Chairs Project' will be unveiled at 5pm (today) March 8, 2017 in the Eden Place Arts Centre at Pilot's Row Community Centre.

For a few weeks, Pilots Row Youth Club, Headliners and The Rainbow Project have explored the idea that sexism is evident in objects all around us. As a visual and creative way of expressing their findings and thoughts they then etched their words into the chairs.

At the event there will be a poetry reading and an opportunity for discussion on this year's International Womens Day theme, 'Be Bold for Change.'
