Further to Jess’ post last month about the launch of Storm in a Teacup, the London-based collective set up with the aim of promoting women in the arts, we’ve received this update via their Facebook group page:
Following the huge success of our launch party at the end of Feb, the girls at Storm in a Teacup have been busy working away behind the scenes to organise more fabulous female-friendly events for the coming year.
We are working with Ladyfest TEN to help celebrate the tenth anniversary of Ladyfest with the main event in November, as well as a number of events, including:
