The Wild Nellies

Celebration of Women

April 07, 2018 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM

The Wild Nellies are delighted to share our creativity along with stories underlying our work and a nod to women who inspire and empower us. We are a growing collective of women creators of music, art, theatre, film, literature, dance (and more).  Each of The Wild Nellies shares a passion for spreading the healing power of creative self-expression to women struggling to find their voice. Each of our events raise awareness and funds for a local charity that supports women fleeing domestic abuse.

This uplifting Celebration of Women will raise awareness and funds for the Women’s Multicultural Resource and Counselling Centre of Durham (WMRCC), an organization that works from integrated feminist, anti-racist and anti-oppression perspectives.
