Ideas Factory – Get involved!

Dawn from our Grapevine Empowerment Service has been working with Nuneaton & Bedworth Council to host their first Ideas Factory.
Fourteen people gathered in Nuneaton on a wet cold Thursday evening to share idea’s, skills and resources to shape what International Women’s Day could look like in Nuneaton and Bedworth in March 2018.  There was great energy in the room with a diverse group of people from the local community.
Inspirational stories were shared and ideas were generated by local people.  15 pledges were made on the night which ranged from exploring local heritage, engaging with local dramas, faith, support groups and schools through to to celebrating the achievement of local women whilst still pressing for progress on gender inclusion.
This was only the start, if you have an idea of what the 2018 International Women’s Day could look like please join us on Thursday 16th November 2017, 12;30pm to 3.00pm at Old Meeting URC Church Leicester Road Bedworth CV12 8AH.
