Our HERstory Project


‘Our HERstory – uncovering 100 years of International Women’s Day in Derby’

We are delighted to be supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund for this project in partnership with Culture Train, which will uncover and celebrate the HERstory of our annual event.

We will be running this project during 2016-2017 to conduct research, capture memories, dig out photos and mementos from past IWD Derby events via community workshops and a public ‘HERstory in the attic appeal’. Together with Culture Train and volunteers from the local community we will create an exhibition including a website, timeline, pop-up display and film to give recognition to the women who went before us and to celebrate our HERitage. The exhibition will be launched at our IWD Derby Festival on Saturday 11th March 2017.
