35th Anniversary

WISEST turns 35 & 'No Belles'


Join us on October 12, 2017 to celebrate WISEST's 35th Anniversary and enjoy Portal Theatre's “FRINGE-Favourite” production of "No Belles". 

"Of the 575 individual people who have won the Nobel Prize in the sciences, only 16 have been women. NoBelles tells the stories of some of the women who won the Prize, and some who didn't, but should have. Using a variety of storytelling techniques, No Belles introduces some of the most fascinating women to ever don a lab coat!"

After the play, there will be a post-show panel discussion focusing on our theme “Oh, the places we have been, we are at and we will go!” 

*Free food, cash bar and door prizes*

This event is also in conjunction with the celebration of Ada Lovelace Day (Oct 17, 2017) and AWSN’s WINSTEM Week (Oct 10 -14, 2017).
