Book your stall at the popular annual International Women's Day (IWD) Festival Derby 2017!
Engage with hundreds of festival visitors, reach a diverse audience, network with 40 other organisations and catch the eye of passers-by on a busy Saturday in the city centre.
This is an annual event organised by a non-profit group of volunteers - by the community, for the community; the event brings together local public services, charities, support groups, national campaigns and inspiring role models to celebrate, inspire, reach out, raise awareness and make a difference.
Observed across the globe, IWD is a chance to celebrate achievements, raise awareness of the issues affecting women and girls and inspire people to take action on gender equality. It is also a day to remember, celebrate and thank women and girls – past and present.
The festival hosts a variety of stalls; stallholders engage with the hundreds of visitors to the IWD festival on a busy Saturday in the city centre. Stallholders say that they benefit from being part of the IWD festival by raising awareness, networking with other organisations, engaging the public, fundraising, recruiting staff or volunteers or growing membership and being associated with a positive event, showing a commitment to gender equality.
As well as the stalls at the festival, there will be celebrations with live multicultural performances, inspiring workshops, sports, crafts and activity tasters, family fun, creche and food outlets and a great atmosphere. Stalls will be located on the Market Place under the cover of a large marquee/s and yurts which we are providing.
The event is free to enter (donations appreciated) for all the community, and everyone is welcome - all genders, all ages, to help everyone in Derby & Derbyshire to celebrate and renew efforts towards gender equality. We look forward to celebrating with you!
Don't forget to join this event and promote your stall on our facebook page too: https://www.facebook.com/events/1310628388955201/
