What does resilience mean to you? How have Merseyside women resisted injustice? Where are the stories of hope?

Women in Action is an arts and heritage project aiming to gather and celebrate stories of women’s resilience, activism and community organising in Merseyside. In these one-hour Story Circles we will offer simple prompts inviting people to share their own memories and stories, and explore creative ways of interpreting and responding to these experiences.

These sessions are suitable for any women aged 18+ with a connection to Merseyside. You might be someone with experience of activism or community organising; you might be interested in developing your creative skills; or you might just want to discuss what resilience or hope mean to you. You don’t need to have a particular story in mind when you sign up, and you don’t need to have any previous experience.

Each session will be slightly different so you can sign up for just one or all three!

Story Circle sessions:

Tuesday 2 February, 6:30pm

Thursday 11 February, 2pm

Friday 19 February, 3pm
