The Goddess Projects Festival
Various – until 1/12
The Goddess Projects Fest (TGPF) kick-started this October and will run until the start of December. With events in art, literature, business, spirituality, education and more, TGPF aims to inspire and empower black women to achieve greatness for their communities. With nine events taking place in association with various hosts across Liverpool, including Writing on the Wall, Homotopia and Everyman and Playhouse, the festival is an inclusive, inspiring and innovative event for women of colour across Merseyside and beyond.
Events include Stage Your Story, a script writing workshop at the Everyman on 10th November and I am Not Your Superwoman: Black Women’s Health and Vulnerability online discussion panel. The events will be taking place online in the hope to connect, support and care for black women during a time when mental health must be at the forefront of our minds. With talks about business from goddess Khadiijah and a podcast from Go Off, Sis, this virtual festival is set to open up a discussion about the well-being of women of colour within Liverpool. With opportunities for self-expression, self-reflection and self-fulfillment, TGPF also focuses on holistic healing, creative output and productive positivity.
The Goddess Projects has been running in Liverpool for two years and has since grown into a network of women empowering one another through arts, wellness and research. They have been seen to support local, black creatives and business owners throughout their existence and show no sign of slowing down. Lockdown has presented various struggles and hardships for many of us, and The Goddess Projects is here to help support people through this difficult time. Not allowing the restrictions of lockdown to hinder them, they have embraced their online community and have created a truly wonderful line-up of virtual events to help connect people in as many ways as they possibly can.
