Lots of planning at Girl HQ

Greetings from Girl HQ!

We hope you’re having a lovely summer, we’ve been hard at work putting something brilliant together for day of the girl. This year we’re changing it up a bit and will be celebrating International Day of the Girl at the beautiful Guildhall (or as we like to call it, the Girldhall). Just look at how beautiful it is!

As well as a change of scenery, there’s also been a change behind the scenes. One of our co-founders Sarah has taken a short break while she welcomes a new baby to her family. Congratulations Sarah! As a result we are delighted to welcome Helen and Erica to the organising team. Both have been really involved with the project over the past few years so fit in perfectly – we are very pleased to have them!

This year we are continuing our exhibition of art and creative works from young people in the region and invite anybody who’d like to get involved to get in touch with us: dayofthegirlnorwich@gmail.org

Our theme this year is: ‘Working Together to Create a Brighter Future’ and we’ll be hosting lots of fun activities for those of all ages.

This year there will discussions and creative workshops covering topics such as:

  • Pubishing
  • Zines
  • Politics
  • Norfolk Men Say No
  • Girls in Sport
  • The Suffragettes

We’re hoping to provide workshops that include practical activities such as rosette making (support votes for women!), zine making (have your say!), artwork (get creative!) and if all goes to plan, a ping pong table!

So, watch this space and be sure to follow us on facebook and on twitter as we announce more details in the run up to International Day of the Girl 2015.

Much love from all at Girl HQ!
