Claiming our Space

Claiming our Space is an event which highlights something special about Sudanese women. We will be showcasing outstanding contributions by Sudanese women in many fields – often against formidable odds. To demonstrate our diversity, we will be bringing together women from various regions, backgrounds and generations who are making a difference in many fields: science, business, sports, diplomacy, art, media, education and community development.

The event has 6 live speakers, two pre-recorded short talks and two entertainers from various regions of Sudan and the diaspora: all women. The event will also include a showing of a whole session from TEDxWomen event taking place in Washington DC the same day.

Please join us in person or live online on the first day of December between 16:00 and 21:00 hours

This event is by invitation only, however 20 tickets will be available through a competition on our facebook page open on 14th November at midday

We hope all of you - men and women, Sudanese and non-Sudanese - enjoy our event and take pride in celebrating Sudanese women’s achievements with us on this day.
