We will be hosting a disabled women’s craft space at this years Sapphormation.

We will be in room G17 at 3:45-4:45pm.
What is Sapphormation?
To fully understand the inequities of the world, we must first understand that difference is power. Each woman has a powerful identity, rooted in class, race, sexuality, disability, religion and ethnicity. The ways in which these various categories interact with each other creates our individuality and difference. Sapphormation 2019 will bring together for a women who love women for a full day of workshops, performance, talks and more to show that difference is power! Find out more about the festival on their website.
The entrance is level access, there are lifts to all floors and several accessible toilets on each floor.
All lifts are wheelchair accessible and the controls are at a usable height. There are four sets of lifts located in each of the Atrium, which means meeting rooms and spaces on higher floors are easy to reach. There is also audio assistance in each lift.
