Ladyfest Ten

Just a quick shout out for Ladyfest Ten - the celebration of all things Lady going on this weekend.There is SO much on, but here are a couple of my highlights for tomorrow- I'll definitely be there, tweet me if you come too!


My Sunday Highlights:

MUSIC: Viv Albertine of The Slits

WORKSHOPS/DEBATES:



How To Run A Ladyfest (useful for anyone interested in any sort of event organisation)
Sunday 11am-12:30pm @ Resource Centre Room 3

Go from 0 to Ladyfest organiser in an hour and a half!
In this hands-on session we’ll equip you with all the skills and knowledge you’ll need to put on a kick-ass DIY feminist event. Things we’ll cover: how to book venues, how to market your event, how (not) to act like a promoter, how to get a lot done on a non-existent budget. We’ll also discuss issues of participation, inclusivity, democracy, working in a collective, leadership and team work.




Tatty Devine Jewellery Clinic
Sunday, 12pm-5pm @ The Lady Garden

Bring along your broken and unwanted jewellery and the Tatty Devine team will be on hand to help you transform and customise it into something shiny and new that you’ll be proud to wear again! Look out for Tatty Devine tote bags and raffle prizes up for grabs too. First come, first serve, drop in session.

Customisation Station with Pedalkraft
Sunday, 1pm-4pm @ The Lady Garden

Bring a piece of old, tired clothing to customise or make your Ladyfest Ten tote bag or t shirt extra special with pom poms, buttons, ribbon, embroidery and more. Pedalkraft will be on hand to help inspire and guide you in transforming your items or have a rummage in our charity shop finds and swap a small donation for a new creation, ready to feature in a special fashion shoot for the Ladyfest Ten blog.
