Seven Dials will celebrate International Women’s Day in March, with a week-long celebration supporting the official 2019 theme of #BalanceforBetter, collaborating with influential women including feminist activist, journalist and author of Sunday Times Bestseller ‘Feminists Don’t Wear Pink and Other Lies’, Scarlett Curtis.
The Seven Dials International Women’s Day campaign will run from Monday 4th to Sunday 10th March 2019 to address gender equality, finding work life balance, and the day to day challenges that women face.
Scarlett Curtis, the forward-thinking feminist activist known for her 'Feminists Don’t Wear Pink and Other Lies’ book and podcast, will host a live podcast with special guest Chidera Eggerue, aka @TheSlumflower, exclusively for Seven Dials on Sunday 10th March at The Donmar Warehouse, 41 Earlham Street. Tickets to this event are free.
THE #BALANCEFORBETTER HUB
In addition, an exclusive hub will open for the week at 33 Monmouth Street. The hub will offer people a place where equality and body positivity is celebrated and encouraged, and will offer a variety of free activities throughout the week.
Including a series of intimate in-conversations, workshops and drop in sessions with influential business founders and leaders from Seven Dials, including:
Catherine Salway and Andrea Waters Co-Founders of Redemption, London’s latest vegan restaurant, British jewellery designer Dinny Hall, and the UK’s leading female chef, Chantelle Nicholson from Tredwells all bringing their unique voices, opinions and insights on the official IWD theme, #BalanceforBetter.
A free book exchange with empowering female authors will run, with recommendations from and led by a range of influential women and authors including Scarlett Curtis, with new titles added daily.
The hub will be fitted with a contactless charity donation point provided by GoodBox for people to make a donation to Fawcett Society.
Join Iona Rowland, the artist behind Seven Dials’ exclusive artwork ‘The Evolution of Agatha Christie’, for her ‘REMIX’ workshop. Forming part of Seven Dials’ International Women’s Day events programme, Iona will guide you through the process of ‘cutting and pasting’ images, symbols and literature of personal significance to form a visual soundtrack reflecting your passions, aspirations, skills, values, and memories. Referencing remix methods used in early hip hop music and William S. Burroughs literary ‘cut-up technique’, you will create a unique and personal work of art to take home with you.
