The Red Tent Directory was created in 2012 by Aisha Hannibal and Mary Ann Clements. We both first heard about Red Tents from ALisa Starkweather. Her vision for the Red Tent Movement came to the UK through Women in Power (WIP) a transformational women’s initiation programme of which she is a founder and in which we both initiated.
We wanted to create a listing site so that Red Tents became more visible, accessible and findable. Between 2012 and 2021 we worked with over 25 volunteers to co-create this space, as a listing site and increasingly also as a hub of resource and inspiration for the Red Tent spaces our communities create.
We are all volunteers, we have self-funded this project and it is now a Community Interest Company which resources the project through the proceeds from the book we have written and the resources we offer. We are inspired and motivated by the intention to help create liberatory community spaces for women everywhere. The current Red Tent Directory team is made up of the following awesome women:
