***IMPORTANT UPDATE***

RTÉ has decided to postpone the launch of the Herstory TV Series platform to September 2019, when the national broadcaster will launch an open call to the Irish and Northern Irish publics, and diaspora worldwide to share lost women’s stories. For this reason, we won’t be curating an official Herstory Light Festival programme in January 2019. Instead we are going to take an organic approach, like St. Patrick’s festivities, inviting our collaborators to share their Nollaig na mBan events with the hashtag #illuminateherstory to collate and amplify activity across social media. If you are inspired and already have plans in the pipeline please proceed with your Women’s Little Christmas celebrations on the first weekend of January 2019. Alternatively, you can postpone and develop your ideas for the 2020 Herstory Light Festival. Sincere thanks to all our collaborators for your wonderful support to date***
