EC Bristol Stories 4 May: Travelling the Length of the River Amazon with Jacki Hill-Murphy

Get inspired at our EC Stories event.  This month we’ll hear from Jacki Hill-Murphy about her journey of a lifetime along the River Amazon.  Meet like-minded people. Get inspired. Everyone welcome. Thursday 4th May.

Jacki Hill-Murphy is an explorer, teacher, film-maker and speaker and has spent the past few years exploring some of the most inhospitable and remote places on earth.  Her latest project - Recreating the Journeys of the Early Women Explorers - is in its fifth year and the fusion of amazing, unsung women from history, travel and film making has become her passion.

Jacki has recently returned from recreating the 1769 journey of the first women to travel the River Amazon. Her expedition took her from one of the sources of the Amazon, a  stream in Ecuador, to the Atlantic in Brazil, a journey of 4,200 miles. Jacki and her team travelled in dug-out canoes or hammock boats and had many dangerous and colourful adventures along the way.

Join us to hear all about her adventure first-hand, a unique combination of history, culture and adventure.
