RedBobble Theatre introduce
FANN (Female Artist Network North)
Are you a female identifying creator or maker? We’d love to meet you. We want FANN to be a place that connects, inspires, celebrates and supports women in the arts.
Our specialism is live performance but we're excited to meet women from all art forms.
We’d love to hear about your skills and about what it is you feel you need in order to keep making. Where are your gaps in knowledge? What are your blind spots? What would you like from FANN?
Together, can we increase our longevity in the arts?
“Meeting for a common purpose”
“Social support groups”
Originating on the Island of Okinawa, Japan, Moai’s were traditionally created with an emphasis on community and for villagers to rely on each other in times of need; providing varying support in social, financial, health or spiritual interests.
Did you know? Japan has the highest number of centenarians in the world. Currently a whopping 69’785! And guess what? 88% of those are WOMEN. Creating a Moai is said to be a significant contributing factor.
We had a thought. By creating our own ‘Moai’ can we increase our longevity in the arts? Can we be more sustainable? Can we be happier? Can we be healthier? Can we have more fun?
Some ideas currently on our list include... skill swapping, networking, seminars on specific topics, scratch sessions and eventually, maybe...opportunities to showcase our work collectively.
The possibilities are endless and exciting, but for now, we’re just keen to get to know you and to learn about how we can make this work for all of us.
Join us for our first ever Manchester meet up. No need to prepare anything, come as you are. The session will be relaxed and friendly. All we ask is that you come with a smile and an open heart.
Refreshments will be provided. The session is free and will last no longer than 2 hours.
Here’s to learning and creating together!
