Assembly is a community for creative women in Northern Ireland; a space to connect with others and enjoy the simple pleasures of food, making as well as exploring our creative paths together. Assembly is open to anyone who desires to engage with others in creative community - not just those in traditional creative professions. We believe creativity is not just reserved for some, but is in all of us.
Assembly was initiated in 2016 to create space for women in the North (and South) of Ireland in creative industries to find community and collaboration opportunities. Since then, it has helped over 100 women connect, increasing their network of support and embarking on collaborative ventures together.
We hold our big banquet-style 'Gatherings' twice a year and are intentional about using food and workshops ideas that reflect the flow of the seasons. We also run Assembly 'Sessions' - smaller events four times a year that explore both the practical and the soulful side of creative living. Sessions equip women to be clear and courageous on their creative path, providing a safe space to learn, reflect and talk through their ideas. Gatherings are when we celebrate, Sessions are when we dig deeper.
