Girl Gang Manchester: Speed Mate-ing at Texture Manchester, 2 March 2017 Tickets from £3.00 — Book now

Ever wished there was a tinder for friends? Feeling a bit lonely in the big city? Not any more you’re not!

Girl Gang Manchester (a mighty collective of female artists, creatives, thinkers and do-ers who run screenings, workshops, parties, skill sharing sessions and socials to help inspire and support women) will be running a speed friendship making session. Rebelling against the pressures of career based scenarios in which we are told to push through situations that make us feel uncomfortable in order to achieve, this is a speed session so silly and inclusive that you’ll step outside of any usual comfort zone without even realising. Taking inspiration from dating shows, bad business meetings, teenage sleepovers, art attack and agony aunts undertake creative challenges and respond to conversational topics, creating authentic connections between new friends, quickly and fear free!
