Connect, Inspire, Learn
Manchester Art Gallery
Wednesday 7 August 2019, 1pm–4pm
This is an interactive space for young people in Greater Manchester to get together with grassroots activists, campaigners and women in politics, to connect, listen to each other and to ‘get things done’.
An afternoon of dialogue and critical thinking, this British Council event is an opportunity for change-makers young and old to work alongside each other, inspiring shared learning to challenge gender stereotypes, engage in political participation and activism and help formulate ideas about what a ‘gender-sensitive’ political and citizenship education could look like.
The Get Together and Get Things Done exhibition provides a backdrop to sharing inspiring UK and international examples that are rooted in women-led activism, the struggle for women’s equal political representation and campaigns for gender equality.
This event is linked to the British Council report ‘Women, Power, Politics’
A Manchester Histories event with the British Council.
