To celebrate the centenary of the creation of International Women’s Day, a Wales-originated event called Flare! will be taking place on Saturday March 5th, between midday and 12.30 pm.

Co-organised by writer and creative practitioner Leona Jones and women’s workshop leader Jules Heavens, it has aimed to develop a network of women throughout the UK and beyond who will host an event/an activity of their choice – be it singing, dancing, storytelling, performing, painting or even just sitting in silence – to celebrate the achievements of women worldwide.

I’ll be taking part in Leona’s ‘reading aloud’ event, using works by women writers, in the entrance hall of the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff. If you’re interested checking out the range of other activities that’ll be happening, do visit the map on the Flare! website.
