Event Details

The Women in Adventure Session is back, this year presented by Arc’teryx.

On Saturday, 19 November, we hear from a group of inspiring women adventurers who’ve cut their own paths in the outdoors, becoming bona-fide legends along the way and inspiring other women to follow their dreams.

Joining us for a night of empowering film and conversation are…

Arc’teryx German alpinist, four-time ice-climbing world champion and all-round outdoors hero, Ines Papert, recounting her incredible life story.

Arc’teryx boulderer Mina Leslie-Wujastyk presenting the next episode in the Close Up film series. 

Jamaican-born, US-based hiker Mardi Fuller challenges the lack of diversity on our trails with a screening of her film, Mardi and the Whites.

Director of climbing group United We Climb, Marie Uri, brings her experience helping underrepresented groups into the outdoors to a discussion about accessibility.

Marshalling these conversations is UK’s leading authority on outdoor swimming and director of Women’s Trad Festival Gilly McArthur, alongside co-host Rehna Yaseen, community worker and outdoor instructor. 

Lucky audience members will be in with a chance of winning one-off Arc'teryx prizes.
