Go beyond hosted website solutions and take control. An introduction to some of the possibilities offered by free, open-source software. Some experience of website building useful. No coding knowledge required.
Women only event
There are hundreds of easy to use website building solutions available. The majority are hosted, the online equivalent of fast food – you don’t have to think about ingredients, cooking or keeping the kitchen clean. Convenient, but what if you want to move beyond the menu provided, or if you disagree with principles in play?
This workshop will look at ways of taking control and going beyond the limits of hosted solutions. It won’t provide all the answers, but it will provide an introduction to ways of installing free, open source, software (including the self-hosted version of WordPress, and Drupal) and a foundation for continuing to experiment with confidence.
Some experience of website building is useful but no coding knowledge is required. Bring your own laptop (essential) and find out just how far it’s possible to go.

The Audacious Women Festival is your chance to break down personal, political or institutional barriers, and to celebrate audacious women everywhere. This is more than a women's festival – we celebrate Audacious Women - women who are bold and courageous, who have flaunted convention, taken risks and done audacious acts. Women who move outside their comfort zone, face their inner demons and do what they always wished they dared.
Wherever you are, we’re here to encourage you to do your own audacious act. Break convention. Get outside your comfort zone. Be adventurous. Do a charity parachute jump, throw some bricks through the glass ceiling, or organise a protest march. Anything that will make a positive difference to you or to the world.
