International Women’s Day (IWD) celebrations in Derby are planned by a committee of volunteers, by the community for the community. We are grateful to everyone who gives their time and expertise. We would like to thank our volunteers, guest speakers, performers, funders and contributors for helping to make this important event possible.
We are delighted to be supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund for a project in partnership with Culture Train – ‘Our HERstory – uncovering 100 years of International Women’s Day in Derby’. 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 to create an exhibition to launch at our 2017 festival.
