Women in Computing Festival 2018: Her Story

24 September 2018 - 14 October 2018

Following on from the success of our 2017 Women in Computing festival we've made it an annual event in our calendar! Our 2018 festival celebrates Her Story: stories of women in the tech industries. 

Her Story is an interactive exhibition celebrating women who live, breathe and work computing and tech.

The focus is on celebrating women who work or have worked in technology through the stories that they can tell. 

We are currently capturing stories for display (written documents, video clips, audio recordings, photographs, objects of interest or other creative media). The stories need not be a biography of an entire life or career; they could be an excerpt that is of particular interest, be around an item from a project to be proud of or perhaps something that inspired a woman to enter the field of technology.

Are you a woman who is working or has worked in the tech industry? Do you have a story to tell? We would like to hear from you. Please get in contact with us by email: wic2018@computinghistory.org.uk and one of the festival team will get back to you.

The festival will include an interactive exhibition (included in standard museum admission price) as well as a series of events for the public, for schools and for teachers.

Tickets for some events are already on sale:
Details of other events will be released shortly. Check back here soon!




Our 2017 festival: Where Did All the Women Go? included a one of a kind exhibition on some of the women who seem simply to have been written out of history, alongside a packed programme of events. 

A product of our Edit-a-thon event was our Women in Computing timeline, that charts many of the women who have contributed to the development, use and application of computers.
