The TEDxBelfastWomen event in the fabulous new building that is Skainos in the East of the city, was a unique and exciting blend of inspiration and information, with a healthy measure of entertainment and craic thrown in.

The speaker line-up included some well-known and not so well-known, local and not so local, women who each have their own fascinating stories to share about how they are influencing the growth of the communities in which they live, love and work and how they are actively part of ‘the space between’.
