What better way to share the week than in images!
Wow, what a week!
What a wonderful festival week!
What started out as a planning meeting for how we could run our Festival Day, turned into 6 dynamic women planning a Festival Week!
We swiftly realised:
You cannot capture all the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai area has to offer women on one day that potentially has conflicting events.
International Women’s Day is an opportunity for many of the local women’s organisations to raise awareness of what they do and raise much needed funds.
There was no central space for how to access all that information
You can moan about a lack or you can be the change you want to see!
The Hornsby Ku-ring-gai International Women’s Day Festival Organising Committee was born!
We met each Monday morning at 7.30am at the PCYC Hornsby Ku-ring-gai. The staff at the PCYC are fantastic, the space welcoming and the parking easy!
The website was built, new flags and banners made, community organisations and businesses contacted and within 3 months the event was on.
30 events and lots of #lovemefirst and #pressforprogress conversations later we now start considering how we can bring more of the community together in 2019.
We hope the pictures of each of our events tell a story!
