Women Of The World Festival
With Women’s international day just around the corner what better way to get in the spirit of things by Attending The Women Of The World Festival.
Celebrating its fifth year at the South Bank Centre in London, The Women of the World festival will begin this weekend and run for a whole week. Events will include talks, debates, exhibitions, performances, markets, workshops, classes and screenings on a range of different topics. Debates surrounding the issues of mental health, disability, feminism and domestic abuse will be available to people to attend for free whilst some workshops will require tickets ranging from £10 – £25.
Tickets will also be available for performances including the music project tUnE- yArDs, legendary performance artist Bobby Baker, The Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe and No Guts, No Heart, No Glory. You can also book tickets now for a workshop with psychotherapist and author Susie Orbach MOBO’s celebration of Women of the World, and BBCR1’s Gemma Cairney’s talk to teenage girls from across the UK about the realities of being a girl right now.
One talk that will be particularly popular is the ‘Annie Lennox in conversation’ talk, which consists of the singer, songwriter and campaigner Annie Lennox joining Jude Kelly to consider humanitarian issues that women of the world face every day, so it’s recommended to buy tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Workshops will also be available on how to blog and vlog, how to take better control of your finances, life drawing and modeling, self defense and even how to twerk!
