Our Board currently consists of five wimen volunteers from Dundee who are incredibly grateful for the support of our partner organisations, our advisers and supporters – and everyone who helps us to Mak it Happen.

We hope you have a fabulous Festival!

About our Programme Designer

In recent years we have made a point of offering the role of Programme Design to a young, upcoming female  illustrator, preferably from the Dundee area. This year’s Programme was brought together by Dulcie Robertson, a fourth year illustration student at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design – we’re sure you will agree it is one of our best yet!

Dundee Women’s Festival is an annual event run in the Dundee and Angus area to span International Women’s Day on 8th March.

We are a small, voluntary Committee, and rely entirely upon external funding. We currently have funding whatsoever,  which is challenging, although funding applications are being submitted with eternal hope. We also contract a very part-time administrator to assist us. We don’t actually organise the Festival – we ask local groups and organisations to arrange events over the period of the Festival dates. The part we play is to umbrella all of these into a Festival of Events, to design and print a programme and to promote the Festival as widely as we can.

We charge a £10 registration fee for each organisation or group no matter how many events they are holding as a payment towards our costs.

If you would like to hold an event or would like to get involved in some way with Dundee Women’s Festival – we are always looking for support, funding and sponsorship! – email dundeewomensfest@gmail.com

Even if you can’t get involved, we hope that you will support the annual Festival by attending some of the events.

Get involved with Dundee Women’s Festival!

Would you like to become involved with our Board of Trustees?

Our Board currently consists of a small number of volunteers, supported by our part-time administrator. We meet approximately once a month for around an hour, sometimes in person in Dundee, and sometimes by Zoom. Beyond this a Board member may be asked to be involved in specific tasks such as working on a funding application, reviewing a piece of work or attending an external meeting. We aim to ensure that Board members have specific remits which tie in with their skills and experience,  but which are realistic given that we are volunteers. However, the role of a Board member is not a particularly onerous one, and it’s a lot of fun! If you would like to apply to  join our Board, please get in touch.
