Upcoming Events…will you rise with us?

DVAS One Billion Rising events continue. This month Domestic Violence Advocacy Services (DVAS) are hosting a series of free events across Sligo and Leitrim.

Gender EqualiTea Party

The first of these events, our Gender EqualiTea Party takes place in Fulacht Fiadh Cafe, set in the beautiful grounds of Manorhamilton Castle on Friday, June 24th from 11am to 1pm.

This event is rooted in “radical love, radical pleasure and radical compassion”. It gives space to connect with others over tea and cakes, an open-mic session and more. It creates space for us to rise together and imagine a future without gender violence. This event is open to people of all genders and ages. Everyone is Welcome.

You can register for this event HERE.



The second event is DVAS third Flash Mob. This takes place on Saturday, June 25th at 1.30pm in Wine Street car park.

We will gather to play music and dance. We will place a focus on ending violence against women, while recognising all forms of gender-based violence.

Please join us…

If you have an hour to spare, we would love you to join our circle dance (or give out leaflets.) If dancing is not for you, please just come along, enjoy the music, make the statement that you want to end violence against women and girls by turning up to support us.

Rehearsals for the Flash Mob continue at the Sligo Presbyterian Hall on Wednesday June 15th and 22nd. People of all genders and ages are welcome and encouraged to take part. Everyone is Welcome.
