On The Water

idle women institute

Back to Projects


on the water is a slow touring canal-based project in Lancashire and West Yorkshire.

The artists are currently delivering workshops at the idle women institute on Haydock Street in St Helens.

idle women offers a place for all women and girls to belong. Founded by co-caretakers Cis O’Boyle and Rachel Anderson in 2015, idle women is an artist led organisation that initiates and creates contemporary art with and by women.

idle women is responding to the devastation caused by austerity cuts to women’s services and the systematic erasure of women’s contributions to public life. They believe in creating opportunities, networking and other connections with women across the UK and beyond, and nurturing long term partnerships with specialist women’s providers.
