Every woman deserves a platform to voice her opinion and represent an infinite source of culture and inspiration. With the French Curiosity Club (FCC), women coming from various backgrounds and occupation get a chance to do so. The FCC is a series of monthly meet-ups aiming to shed the light on talented and ambitious women who inspire an international audience at handpicked venues and with like-minded partners. With meetings held in Paris, Lille and London, the FCC is now starting a new venture in Mumbai. Here are 5 reasons why we are so curious about this project.
1. An opportunity to be part of an amazing community of women around the globe
Launched in 2015 in France, the FCC has been very successful and today gathers thousands of Parisian women from all walks of life. Every event is sold out in less than 10 minutes in Paris. Hoping to replicate this success, they decided to expand it all around the world to create a community of international, smart, caring and open-minded women.
2. Meeting exceptional women & listening to inspiring stories
Every month the FCC invites you to a ‘Talk’ (they call it a curiosity meeting) lead by one specific woman. For example, in Paris they have already hosted two world famous war reporters, the star ballerina of the Opera de Paris, the French wedding dress designer Laure de Sagazan, a basketball player who won the NBA championship and so many more. Coming to the FCC allows you to meet, in a privileged way, the women who will make a difference in tomorrow’s world. For the opening of the FCC Mumbai on June 6, you will have the opportunity to meet Geeta Tandon, a Bollywood stunt performer. She is an inspiration and an exceptional woman. Raised in a challenging environment, she has always found the strength to fight for her children and for herself.
3. Novelty, culture & above all curiosity
The FCC is all about curiosity. The mantra is ‘Curiosity energises the human spirit. The FCC lifts female spirits’. Every month the FCC will bring you to a new world, a new domain that will make you learn new things and give you all the inspiration and courage to launch your own projects. Moreover, the FCC will always take place at a different venue to enable you to discover Mumbai in a new light.
4. ‘Cause Wednesday is Girls Night Out
If you like hanging out with your girlfriends, you will love this new concept that is made by women for women. The talk is followed by drinks and food that makes it the perfect occasion to chat and exchange your thoughts and feelings about the talk. It is also the best way to meet new like-minded women and make both personal and professional connections.
5. Creating partnerships & meeting new brands
The FCC takes every opportunity to shed light on women’s projects. They will introduce you to new fashion designers at every talk, invite you to discover new brands, make you contribute to amazing initiatives and you may even go back with little presents!
This is a great opportunity for women from different careers across Mumbai to come together and take inspiration from each other. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? Let us know in the comments below!
