Tickets available for national women and creative leadership conference

Published on: Wednesday, 05-March-2014

Tickets are now on sale for the national women and creative leadership conference, which will take place on 20 March at The Huyton Suite.

At the event, one hundred women from Knowsley will showcase their self portraits, completed through attending a series of creative and wellbeing workshops.   Throughout the day, delegates can also attend a range of workshops and inspirational talks.
The artwork will then form part of a touring exhibition and they will be displayed locally, nationally and internationally.

The women’s creative workshops encourage discussions and support around stress management, confidence building, addiction, creative writing and building friendships as well as artistic tuition and guidance.

A range of business women from across the borough have taken part in the project including Knowsley Chamber of Commerce’s Chief Executive, Lesley Martin-Wright and Annette Hennessey, Merseyside Probation Service’s Chief Executive Officer.

Lesley said “I am thrilled to be working with such an innovative and creative project.  A fabulous shared experience for all who engage.”

Annette added "I am supporting this initiative because art has the power to be a great leveller, to build a community of spirit, and above all to build dreams and hope!"

Tickets for the conference and exhibition on 20 March are available from or visit the website –
