Making Her Mark

10th March at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until 25th March, 2021

Can you name a Renfrewshire heroine? How are women’s lives reflected in Renfrewshire’s towns and villages? How are they celebrated or remembered? Since January 2020, women have bringing their stories and ideas to this exciting new project and there’s still chance to get involved, try out something new, take part in creative workshops and local history research, and make friends.

Making Her Mark, Weekly from Wednesday 20th January, 1pm to 2.30pm, Online, Women only, 16+

It was really relaxing to be around other women, of all ages…quizzes, films, archive materials, chats… the best thing was the laughter…” – Making Her Mark participant

We’re excited to be working with Johnstone-based Kairos women’s project and Renfrewshire-based RAMH (Recovery Across Mental Health) in a creative project celebrating women in Renfrewshire. We’re working with local women to look at how women are represented and remembered in Renfrewshire. The project will draw on the memories, stories and creative skills of local women and will run until September 2021, when an exhibition and celebration event is planned.

Although this project has been running since January 2020, there is still a chance to help with and take part in preparations for the final exhibition and celebration. The project will also link with women in Furth in Germany, which is twin-towned with Paisley.

To find out more about Kairos, you can visit their Facebook page here.

This project is a partnership between GWL, Kairos and RAMH and is supported by the Renfrewshire Council culture, heritage and events fund.
