“Hatpins to Hashtags is an innovative region wide project developed by Feminist Archive South exploring and reclaiming the tools of democracy to mobilize activism and celebrate herstory. Throughout Autumn and Winter 2018, a dynamic programme of digital engagement, educational workshops and exhibitions across the south west will advocate for greater gender parity in local and national politics and increase knowledge of UK democracy.”
We will be there for a couple of days at weston college talking tech careers and the apprenticeship levy to anyone who is interested. It will be in Weston from the 8th – 19th October and we will be there on the 11th and the 15th. They are on the road and showing all over the South West so go check it out at one of the other events if you can’t make Weston.
It looks like it’s all quiet on the western front again for our women tech groups as theres nothing in the diary this week. So you can kick your shoes off and take a break after last weeks flurry!
