Description

Come and join The Southampton Collective CIC and VieNess in celebrating International Women's Day.

This year's theme is #BalanceForBetter

We know that, in this world where we are all so easily contactable, valuable communication is often something we can feel is lacking. With social media showing people's edited highlights, with so many of us feeling like we have Imposter Syndrome, with so many of us feeling like we can't show our true selves to our colleagues, even our friends and family, this will be a safe space to be authentically you.

We are inviting you to create a feast to share! In the style of an American Potluck Supper, please bring a plate of food (or a bag or packet) to share. Please don't bring anything with nuts or coconuts in. We shall provide soft drinks. Please feel free to bring your own alcohol.

We shall lay out tables for you all to sit at and we encourage you to talk to all the other wonderful people around you whilst you enjoy your food.

Then, because we know there will be delicious food and it's likely you'll want more, before you sit down for your seconds, we'll ask you to move on a few seats so you can chat to other fabulous people.

As well as having conversation prompts on the table for you, we'll have a couple of incredible speakers for you to listen to.

There will also be other activities for you to participate in.

We'll have a fundraising raffle too.

Ticket price is £5. All profits from tickets and the raffle will be going to Yellow Door.
Ticket link to follow.

Woolston Community Centre is fully accessible, including a Changing Places toilet. There is onsite parking and plenty of parking on the side roads. First Bus number 11 and Bluestar bus number 17 both stop outside the centre. Woolston Train Station is around a 12 - 15 minutes walk away. We would also like to encourage lift and taxi shares so please do comment if you would like a lift, are willing to share a lift, would like a bus or train companion, or would like to share a taxi; we want everyone to feel safe getting to and from the venue.

More information to come as we have it.

Any questions, just ask vie@vieness.co.uk .

We're looking forward to seeing you.

Oh! And if you like to feel comfy, you're welcome to bring your slippers.
