Followed by Q&A
Some panellists have been with WFH/GWS for years while others are newer members. They bring their experiences of organizing as part of an international network with a shared perspective. How has this changed their lives?
The WFH/GWS Archives
The WFH/GWS community archives are being held at the Bishopsgate Institute. The first decade was launched in March; the next 10 years (1982-1991) will be available for viewing as of this event.
How we’re keeping you safe
April 2022 update: Keeping you safe and healthy is our number one priority.
If you test positive for Covid-19 or are asked to isolate and are not able to attend your class or pre-booked event, please contact the Bishopsgate Box Office for further information (email@example.com). Please do not come to the Institute in person if you have symptoms or have tested positive.
Wearing a face mask is no longer compulsory but we ask you to consider others when in our building and especially when spending time in crowded and enclosed spaces where you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet. You will see many of our staff and volunteers continuing to wear face masks and we are keeping the perspex screens at our reception desks.
Bishopsgate Institute has strict cleaning protocols in place and ventilation throughout the building. There are hand-sanitising stations available throughout the building and touch-free drinking fountains. Find out more about how we’re keeping you safe.
