Time’s up – for outdated fairy tales!
This is 2023 and the girls of today don’t need a prince saving them anymore, thank you very much. The boys are happy whipping up desserts in the kitchen as much as they like kicking a football.
Out with the stereotypes, patriarchy and inequality, so why not have fun with traditional fairy tales like Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, and add our own special twist to it?
Be a part of a storytelling session, write, make art, SMASH stereotypes and have a laugh!
