Exhibitions are fun to attend. I am a very creative and aesthetic person. I love to see other people's work and appreciate the beautiful mind behind the amazing crafts. Lectures are okay...if centered around Education, Psychology, Development work, Technology...then it gets me excited. Other than that, I just manage to hang in there.

Well yeah, there is. Though i am not very familiar with them, i am aware of very few religious/social groups that cater for Women and Girl-child development. I am more into Education as relates societal (community) development. I have volunteered for a few organizations and handled personal projects in that line.

I'm keen of going to exibitions, especially about the 1900s painting; therefore I try to visit the most important exibitions, at least in my country (Italy) and, if it's possible, also abroad. I like to attend also the book launchs. In my town there are many organisations which undertake to do group activities in the fields where The Hypatia Trust works.

Yes, I enjoy going to lectures, exhibitions and seminars mainly to learn about the making if great people.
Yes, I am aware of the Inner wheel society for women.
