Will you come and help us plan WOW Cardiff 2018?
WOW - Women of the World is a global festival that celebrates the incredible achievements of women and girls, takes a frank look at the obstacles they face, and creates a space to discuss new solutions together. Originating at Southbank Centre in London in 2011, it has taken place in 23 cities across five countries – from New York to Sydney, and from Pakistan to Finland.
With support from Spirit of 2012, WOW is coming to Chapter in Cardiff on the 24th - 25th November 2018 - a local festival with a global outlook. Will you help us shape it?
Each WOW festival is made up of talks, discussions, music, activism, performance, mentoring and big ideas, and features women who are breaking the mould in science, entrepreneurship, the arts, sport, economics, health, and business. It is deliberately very diverse, with sessions on personal issues right through to those of national and international concern, including war and peacekeeping, body image, violence against women and girls, race, religion, the role of men in gender equality, older women’s voices, young women’s stories, and whether Beyoncé is a feminist icon.
