100 Years Workshop
Two workshops: Mon 16 & Thurs 19 April 2018, 6.30pm – 8pm
About #TakeUpSpace: On International Women’s Day 2018, nine of the Royal Court Theatre’s female employees announced a new series of free workshops and discussions starting in April as part of the #TakeUpSpace movement.
The workshops are created with the aim to further empower women in the arts, to champion the growth of female leadership and to interrogate the current state of creative industries.
About the workshop: ‘This year we celebrate the centenary of the Representation of the People Act in 1918, which gave some women the right to vote – but how do we envision the next 100 years for women?
This workshop invites women of all ages to imagine an ideal future and to propose ways in which we can challenge inequality.
Alongside the workshops, we will also invite women to share their ideas through a series of questions posted on the Royal Court website. The responses will be collated and transformed into a series of stimuli for female writers who will then be invited to create a piece of writing later in the year.’
Cost/Eligibility: All events are free and are open to anyone who identifies as a woman.
How to book: Booking can be made via the Royal Court Website. They have a small capacity for each event so have limited booking to one ticket per person. There will also be an allocation of tickets available on the day, on the door.
