Rise Up Quines!
Our story.... A group of women from Aberdeen had an idea.
These women wanted to celebrate the centenary of the suffragettes and of (some) UK women winning the right to vote.
But they also wanted to inspire women to become politically engaged and active, and for women from across the North-east of Scotland to realise their potential as leaders; in communities, at work, in education and in society.
And so a festival was born.
Join us as we celebrate women through a series of talks, book launches, music, theatre, dance and films.
