Event Details

Unleash your inner adventurer and join us for the Findra Women on the Move film screening and panel discussion, where we come together to celebrate empowerment, outdoor exploration, and the joy of movement.

The film tells inspiring stories of trailblazing women who resisted social restrictions in the late 19th century by inventing radical new clothes to do all the things they were not meant to - like flying, hiking, swimming, cycling and more! Join us to see how our inventive foremothers set out to change the world stitch by stitch in a story that is as relevant today as it was a century ago.

Along with Aneela McKenna of Mor Diversity, Alice Lemkes, Lee Craigie and Philippa Battye of The Adventure Syndicate and researcher Kat Jungnickel, reimagine the fun these women would have had pushing boundaries by transforming socially acceptable clothing into radical sports and active wear.

The session features a film showing, panel discussion with the Founder of Findra Alex Feechan about how much has changed since the 1890s and how much there is still do to make sport and active lives open, welcoming and accessible to a broader range of people, and a collection demo of convertible sportswear from the past.
