Things to do…

Standard

Ok, so as fun and rewarding as your job may be you can’t, and you shouldn’t, spend all of your time busy with work. Trying to avoid work can be especially hard when you’re spending so much time at home. But, have no fear, W4MP comes to you with a solution! Below are a list of fun activities to keep you busy, keep you thinking, and keep you sane. 

Online Activities to keep you busy offline during the lockdown

Here are some activities that we think will help you stay busy during the lockdown.

Moving around

  • Fitness: If you’re missing the gym, or want to get into exercise for the first time, then P.E with JOE is probably the best place to start. Joe offers a really wide array of online classes that are suited to people of all abilities.
  • Yoga: If you’re looking for something a bit more structured, then maybe online yoga is for you. Yoga with Adriene varies from soft and gentle to thoroughly exhausting.
  • Ballet: The Dutch National Opera and Ballet, as part of their stay at home series, are streaming online Ballet Classes on their YouTube page. Classes come out once a week and are about thirty minutes long.

Cooking

  • There are two kinds of people during a lockdown. People making sourdough and people struggling to find flour. If you’re in the first camp then Breadahead’s online baking course is for you. Live at 2pm (GMT) everyday on Instagram live, Breadahead teaches you how to make a wide variety of loaves from Focaccia to Ciabatta.

Intersectional Suffrage: A focus on the women that didn’t get the vote in 1918.

2018 marks the centenary of the first women in the UK being allowed to vote. The 1918 Representation of the People Act allowed women over the age of 30 to vote provided they were university graduates, had certain property rights, or were married to men who had certain property rights. Ten years later, the 1928 Representation of the People Act provided electoral equality, allowing all women over the age of 21 to vote, regardless of property rights.

Join us on the 20th of February as we learn more about the women who were denied the vote in 1918 and to explore current voting behaviour and political representation across class, gender, and ethnic divides in 2018.

Speakers:

Dawn Butler MP – Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities
Cllr Abena Oppong Asare – London Borough of Bexley and Labour Women’s Network
Neema Begum – PhD Researcher (Ethnicity and Voting Behaviour), University of Bristol
Rachael Gibbons – Programme Lead (Working Class Heroes), RECLAIM Project

Chair: Fahmida Rahman – WebRoots Democracy

Further speakers to be announced.

Spaces are limited and your name will need to be on the guestlist in order to attend.
