Celebrating women's past + empowering our future

Spring Forward is a month-long celebration of the role of women in digital culture and runs throughout March in parallel with Women's History Month.

Our mission

To encourage women to take a greater role in digital by creating a platform that promotes digital community events organised by women for women.


Growing Bolder Online

Sat 18th March, 10:30 68 Middle Street Brighton

Julia Claxton and Emily Yates return with a new experimental photo workshop. A space for women to explore the expression of their online identity in the face of new challenges.

Each half-day workshop is an informal space for discussion and collaboration, to result in a photo essay that is the ‘co-created’ artistic product of every participant.
