We’re opening our Fizz and Feminism events to the public and would love you to join the conversation. We’ll be discussing a range of topics and the practical steps we can take towards gender equality in an inclusive and welcoming space. Everyone is welcome to speak, listen and learn from each other.

PRIDE MONTH – Queer Theatre Representation & Teaching Equality in Schools
To celebrate Pride Month, our first topics for discussion will be Queer Theatre and LGBTQ+ inclusion within arts spaces and Teaching Equality in Schools.
Ellie Snow - she/her - (CFT YAB member and Queer Theatre practitioner) will deliver an opening provocation on the subject of Queer Theatre and LGBT inclusion within arts spaces.
This will be followed by an open discussion.
Andrew Strong (Headteacher at Portfield School) will deliver a provocation on teaching and living equality in schools, looking at how we give children and young people the knowledge and tools to understand and strive for equality, be it gender equality, LGBTQ+ rights or racial justice.
This will also be followed by an open discussion.
Fizz & Feminism will be a ‘brave space’ – we will encourage participants to speak honestly from their own experience to cultivate productive dialogue and mutual learning. We acknowledge that in speaking from our own experience, we might make mistakes and agree to hold one another accountable in the hope that our dialogue will lead us to a greater understanding than we could reach alone.
