#PressforProgress Inspiring Women

Thursday 08 March 2018, 13:00 to 16:00

For International Women’s Day 2018, Arnolfini is hosting an afternoon of free mentoring with some of Bristol's leading women in the arts and creative industries.

The event has been designed for 16-25 year old women* as a chance to talk about their aspirations and to make new connections with other women in the arts industry.

Mentors on the day will include leaders from Watershed, Arnolfini, Trinity Arts Centre, Spike Island,  RWA, In Between Time, Hellion Trace, Bristol Museums, Galleries and Archives, Bristol Festival of Ideas, BBC Radio Bristol as well as artists and writers.

Ticket details: Sign up for a 45 minute session, during which you'll have the chance to spend 15 minutes with up to three mentors.  Each mentoring session will involve a group of up to four participants.

Places are free and we are pleased to support any access requirements you might have. Please contact Letty Clarke should you have any queries or would like to discuss the event in advance

*For this event we use an inclusive definition of “women” and welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people. Self-definition is at the sole discretion of that individual.
