Our next Sunday Assembly will be part of the closing day of the Bloomsbury Festival, with the festival running a programme of rousing talks and vital debates on the subject of 'The Rights of Women' all Sunday long!
Named after Bloomsbury resident Mary Wollstonecraft’s famous 1792 paper, Rights of Woman, this Sunday Assembly will be all about celebrating women and asking: Where next?
We are very excited to have the award winning Jaspreet Kaur as our main speaker this week! Better known as Behind the Netra for her poetry, Jaspreet is an award-winning Spoken Word Artist and History teacher from East London focused on sharing her thoughts on gender issues, mental health stigma, historical topics and positive social change. Jaspreet actively works with national government, corporations and charities alike, such as TED, Westminster Interfaith Council and Action for Children, using her poetry to inspire and drive change. This year, Jaspreet had the honour of performing for Her Majesty the Queen and The Royal Family. Jaspreet truly believes that poetry can be used as a powerful tool for positive social.
This Sunday Assembly will be hosted by the wonderful Charlotte Coates and completing our all female line up this week will be Liz Evans who is Trying Her Best!
We'll also be doing our usual: Mass singalongs to some of our favourite power ballads, an awesome spoken word artist, hearing stories from a number of our community and drinking a vat of tea afterwards.
