We’re in the Wow, Women of the World Festival brochure.

Wow is a fabulous festival of talks, debates, music, film, comedy and activism that celebrates women and girls and also takes a frank look at what can stop us from achieving our potential.

So, on Saturday March 11th we’re part of the show and have a two hour slot 4pm – 6 pm  at Hull City Hall when we are going to showcase the poems, photography and puppetry created at our Art Celebrating Equality Festival workshops last summer.

Come on down!


Find out more about Wow on the Hull City of Culture website.

What We Say

‘I have been involved with this project right from the start I have helped choose and interview the artists conducting the interview process with other young women.

It has been a lot of fun a unique and different experience because although this project is for everyone; it has been led by young women.
