Kickass Collective at Platf9rm

PLATF9RM Kickass Collective

PLATF9RM, the leading independent coworking community in Brighton & Hove, is excited to announce the comeback of Kickass Women, now reimagined as Kickass Collective.

Returning for the fifth year with a fresh twist, PLATF9RM launches ‘Kickass Collective.’ A month-long celebration in March 2024 to honour the people who are shaping the future of our city.

Coinciding with International Women’s Day, Kickass Collective will host an exciting lineup of PLATF9RM and partner-led events that will bring the community together to get inspired and learn new skills. Across the month Kickass Collective will host a live podcast, workshops, a keynote dinner, live music, comedy and more.

“Every year, it gets harder to choose who to spotlight. There is a growing number of incredible women and gender non-conforming people taking strides in their respective fields. This year, we’re focusing on the individuals making an impact in the Brighton & Hove area – we’re inviting local businesses, community organisations, activists, and more to come to our spaces and ignite our thoughts in unique ways.” – Tori Rodway, PLATF9RM Programme Manager

Event Lineup:

● The series of events will kick-off on 7 March with a live discussion with SheSaid, featuring Dr. Sophie Frost, Cat Baker-Bassett, and Rifa Thorpe-Tracey, aiming to inspire and empower women in the tech and creative industries.

● On 8 March, Brighton Girl will host Inspire Inclusion. A conference-style, all-day event featuring bitesize learning and training sessions, extensive networking opportunities and a delicious lunch. In the evening, guests can enjoy Kickass Comedy at The Grounds.

● On 16 March, Platform B will host ‘Shaping Sounds.’ An inclusive, regenerative event, to connect the City’s musically-minded community, and spotlight the women and non-binary folks making life sound good.

● On 27 March, guests can join partners She Said So for ‘Sip and Stick,’ an evening of music, creativity and manifesting.

● Journalist and broadcaster Bibi Lynch hosts the Keynote Dinner on 29 March. With a delicious dinner at The Grounds, Bibi will discuss how to navigate the pronatalistic world of ‘hardworking families’ as well as how ‘As a mother…’, society mistreats the childless and childfree.

● Finally, Kickass Collective closes with a live podcast recording with ‘My First Period Live!’ on 30 March, hosted by Lucy Evers in conversation with guest speaker Dulcie Newbury. They will talk about all matters of menstruation, the challenges of period equity and menstruation in archaeological studies.
