100 Years of Suffrage is a feminist festival taking part over three weekends, July 20th — August 5th. The event will be held at Aire Place Studios
The festival opens on Friday night with an exhibition featuring two feminist artists whose work, whilst working in completely different styles, looks into redefining beauty standards. This will be followed by an after party featuring women and non binary djs.
The next event is a day of workshops and talks for women and non binary people. It really focuses on the last 100 years of suffrage and what the next 100 years have in store for feminism. This will feature talks about suffragettes of colour, talks from women MPs and their experiences in parliament and feminist activists will discuss their battles with law changes and policy makers. This will culminate in a spoken word open mic where women and non binary people can share their political experiences.
The final event is a peddle powered feminist cinema, showing independent films from women and non binary directors featuring films with the theme of suffrage and how far we've come. Vegan food will be on sale.
Our aims is to bring the community together to learn, share and celebrate the last 100 years of suffrage.
