Join the culture club
The bustling Christchurch social calendar provides a compelling backdrop for the city’s informal culture club to congregate and convene. With some of the city’s best and brightest events ahead, from art to music and everything in between, it’s time to join the culture club.
IT’S NOT YOU, IT’S ME
In her latest book, It’s Not You, It’s Me, Camilla Sacre-Dallerup sets the intention of taking the reader on a journey through self-awareness and self-acceptance to a destination of self-love and ultimately self-care. These, she believes, are the four vital parts of healing and having good relationships with ourselves, and when we have a good relationship with ourself, we tend to have good relationships with others. Camilla is holding a teen workshop from 11:30-1pm, and a book launch and workshop from 2pm-4pm.
Saturday 23 November
It’s one of the most powerful speaking formats and it’s back again! Six diverse speakers will talk for four minutes each on any topic they choose. But this is so much more than another networking event. Women from all walks of life – corporates, not-for-profits, artists, mums and all the cool ladies in between – come together at Broad-ly Speaking for an empowering evening of speaking up, changing the conversation and telling it as it is.
