Poet in the City, Newcastle Libraries and the British Library are re-launching Newcastle Herstory, a storytelling series diving into feminist histories and contemporary activist narratives.

The event focuses on the gender equality movement on Tyneside since the pandemic began and explores new pathways for change and action. Over dinner, there will be an evening of discussion alongside lively talks from activists, thinkers and poets that are leading feminist movements in Newcastle.

Speaking on Tuesday 21st September is Newcastle-based audio producer, black feminist and activist Chantal Herbert. Chantal will be joined by Girl-Kind, a North East project that creates space for girls to explore their own selves, relationships and contemporary representations of girlhood, and completing the lineup is Louise Young, a comedian, writer and actor from Newcastle upon Tyne.

The live event is sold out, however, you can take part online, for free, here.
