Connecting people, ideas, and support from the crowd to make Leicester an even better place!
We want to bring the first ever Women’s Festival to Leicester this August. People of all ages and cultures from the city and surrounding areas will come together to celebrate & learn about the amazing women who have shaped our society over the last 100 years & continue to do so today. Women from all the cultural communities of Leicester/shire have achieved great things for the economy, innovation and equality. Their stories need to be told & heard, to educate and inspire the people of Leicester, particularly the youth. Leicester Women’s Festival will be an opportunity to showcase and connect people with the work of local women, through talks, presentations, performances of music & poetry, & interactive storytelling. A timeline will be produced visualising the contribution & impact of women on the communities of Leicester from 1918 to 2018. Sounds great, right? We need your help to make it happen! Pledge today & join us on August 25th for a day of lively celebration!
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This is a great opportunity that will bring the people of Leicester together, where can share what women in all our communities have achieved over the past 100 years and what is being achieved today. The organisation, preparation and running of the event will involve members of the community, educational organisations, businesses and people of all ages (with particular emphasis on youth, disabled and LBGT groups). We are excited to be working with the university and Big Stop Charity. A lasting legacy will be created from the information provided at the festival, in a booklet containing the history and stories of women (from different ethnic groups) who are connected with Leicestershire, spanning the last century. This booklet will be available for future generations to tell the story of women who have influenced Leicester to ensure they are not forgotten.
Steps to get it done:
There are some amazing women so let's celebrate them and inspire our future as we recognise and praise the past!
