For women from Bolton & Wigan, to develop facilitation and leadership skills and create their own campaign or workshop.

About this event

This project aims to bring together women from all different ages, backgrounds, cultures and belief systems to empower them to become even greater peace and cohesion leaders within their community. The workshops will explore creative facilitation techniques, as well as how to hold challenging conversations, support people to develop critical thinking skills and explore themes of hate and radicalisation.

There will be an initial 8 x sessions starting on Tuesday 3rd August

Tuesday August 3rd 10.30am-12.30pm

Wednesday August 4th 10.30am-12.30pm

Then there will be an additional 2 x sessions of which the dates/times are TBC but will involve:

  • 1 x delivery of your workshop/campaign out in the community or with a small focus group, receiving peer feedback
  • 1 x session where all the different boroughs of Manchester/Salford, Bolton/Wigan and Oldham/Rochdale come together to showcase and share their work at a celebration event . Proposed day is International Day of Peace on 21st September 2021.

Everyone involved will receive an ASDAN award in Leadership and has the option of a further 1:1 mentoring session to further develop their ideas if required.

As part of the workshops, participants will watch our award winning interactive theatre performance about hate & Radicalisation called 'Blame & Belonging' which was covered by the Huffington Post. https://bit.ly/30eMFJg

We are delivering the project across Greater Manchester. There is also a project happening in Salford (for women from Manchester/Salford) and one in Rochdale (for women from Oldham/Rochdale)

We are aware the timings may not suit everyone, and we can be flexible with regards to which group you attend, if the timings of one borough suit you more than the borough you live in, you are welcome to attend that group instead.

Please get in touch if there are any other additional barriers to you being able to attend, or if you have any additional needs you want to discuss. Wherever possible it would be great if you can attend all the sessions but we understand people have other commitments and responsibilities and so this may not always be possible.

THIS TICKET IS FOR ALL 8 x SESSIONS

Refreshments and contribution towards travel will be provided.

Please contact jo@oddarts.co.uk

We look forward to working with you!
