Come to our ‘Welcome and Welcome Back’ event! Fri, 18 October 2019

Next round of Feminist Network Small Projects Fund Open!

This may include but is not limited to: events, small exhibitions, external speakers, representing the network at events or conferences, reading or discussion groups, research, seed funding for bigger proposals (larger conferences, research etc), wellbeing initiatives, social events. If you are unsure if your project meets the criteria please get in touch.

Devil’s Dyke Network Summer Festival – Pleasure Garden 2019!


The festival will feature more poetry, performance and art, but we’re stretching our wings even further this autumn for a day filled with writing classes, movement exercises, live discussions… and maybe some dancing.  Our goal is to create and be in this space mindfully and communally, bringing something to Brighton that has been missing. Come create it with us.

Join the CHASE Feminist Committee!

Let us know if you are interested in getting involved in our organising committee!  The committee helps steer the work of the network and helps us work towards out aims and objectives.  We still have some spaces available on the committee, particularly keen to find people to help with comms and website work, but also to help out organising locally.

We are happy for these roles to be filled by one or more candidates if you wish to share responsibilities with a friend or colleague.  We are particularly interested in getting people involved in our social media/comms roles and making sure we have a rep in each of our institutions.

If there is something else you would like to do with/for the network that isn’t listed please just drop us an email. chase.feminist@gmail.com

These roles can be filled by any student or staff member at a CHASE institution, we are also interested in hearing from those outside of academia who want to contribute to our work.  We value and respect the contributions of all women and allies to our network. This includes women, men, trans-individuals and people who identify outside the gender binaries.

Details of roles and how to apply are on our website: https://chasefeministnetwork.wordpress.com/2019/06/12/join-the-chase-feminist-organising-committee/
