March 8th is the International Women's Day. As part of the celebrations we are organising a variety of activities here in Sri Lanka and in the UK. Please find below the list of scheduled activities:
Calling out all talented women involved in Colombo’s evolving arts to showcase their talents in music, poetry, art or inspire everyone with their success story.
A screening of the movie Suffragette which tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State.
Screening of the movie 'Wonder Woman (2017)' at the Orion City Library.
In the context of International Women’s Day (March 8), the British Council, in partnership with UN Women, joins the efforts of the #HeForShe campaign through an Arts focus, by mainstreaming the work we do with a diversity of female artists from different disciplines from each region.
A ‘Creating Heroines’ panel discussion will also take place and be live streamed through the network. For more info visit www.heforsheartsweek.org
