While we are still in lockdown, and do not know what March 2021 will bring, we are certainly planning to have a Dundee Women’s Festival next year, with the theme being ‘The Power of Women’ – an appropriate title in what will be the centenary year of International Women’s Day.
We accept that next year’s Festival will very possibly look different – it could well be shorter in length, it may take place partially or fully online – but by The Power of Women – we are determined that it will take place!
And so we’re starting to make plans in the knowledge that we will be keeping an eye on government advice.
- We will be asking partners to register their interest in holding an event by the end of October 2020.
- We will then ask for partner to send us a registration form by Friday 6th November.
- We will then bring together an events Programme by the end of 2020 – using once more Hayley Wells, the fantastic illustrator whose Women Making Waves designs were so well received, and who has already provided us with the above striking image.
- The programme will be printed in early January 2021 for distribution if appropriate, or it may be an online only version.
The above is in line with our normal planning time frames. But we will be open to online events, and work reactively should advice and guidelines change. We also appreciate that some of you will have been furloughed and may struggle to have the time of capacity to work within these timeframes and will work to accommodate this where possible.
So we would ask that if you have any thoughts, ideas or challenges around the planning of DWF21, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
