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, that rely entirely upon external funding. We also currently employ 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.

Women Emerging Stronger – Dundee Women’s Festival 2023

Thank You To Everyone Who Took Part In Dundee Women’s Festival 2023!

The Dundee Women’s Festival team wish to say a huge thank you to everyone who ran an event as part of Dundee Women’s Festival 2023, who attended events, promoted events and who supported the Festival in any way. We hope you will agree that this year’s event was a great success, and worth all the blood, sweat and tears that went into organising it!

We were delighted with the broad range of events which took place, covering everything from women in science, transport, art, history, writing and poetry, nature, academia, work, sport, dance, film, culture, the home, health, care and wellbeing – and more!

If you have any comments, images, or any questions at all about this year’s Festival, you can email us at dundeewomensfest@gmail.com – even if you didn’t hold an event this year,  if you attended an event, your feedback would be much appreciated.

We will have a bit of a break and then start planning our 2023 Festival for which the deadline for events registration will be early November – so  it’s never too early for you to start planning your event too!

A Thank you to our outgoing Chair, Prue Watson

We would also like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to our outgoing Chair, Prue Watson.

Prue has been the driving force behind the Festival for many years, from carrying out vital fundraising efforts, to representing the Festival at meetings and events, from walking miles to distribute programmes to keeping everything – including  the Board! – organised and on track. Prue will be stepping down from her position as Chair and from the Board of Trustees altogether shortly – and will be very much missed.

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.

We are also recruiting for a new Chair.

The Chair role includes chairing our monthly meetings, along with the AGM and any other Special General Meetings; preparing a brief annual report for the AGM and OSCR, liaising with other Board members as required and representing Dundee Women’s Festival as appropriate. The Chair is responsible for ensuring that our Constitution is followed, and that our activities comply with the charitable purposes of the Organisation, along with ensuring that the charity remains in good financial standing. The role will be ably supported by our Board members and part-time administrator.

If you think you might be interested in this role, please get in touch and we will forward you more details.
