We are based in London and host many of our broadcasts on-location in Florence, and as 'the conversation' grows, we look forward to talks and on-line venue visits with curators, museum executives, restorers and field experts throughout the world that spotlight women in the arts and social history.


English-speaking folk tune in from anywhere in the world, from Rome, Hawaii, and Vancouver to New York, Poland, France, and even night owls in Australia. Each broadcast is followed by a Q-and-A session with the programme's guests, which addresses questions arising among our live-stream participants. Looking forward to seeing you on-line, for the next one!
