The new women’s festival WOW (Women of the World), is the the brainchild of Dame Jude Kelly, Artistic Director at London’s Southbank Centre. This exciting event is launching this March, the annual festival is not just about women in music but women across a huge variety of artistic, scientific and social disciplines.
“WOW is a joyous celebration of the formidable strength and inventiveness of women,” says Jude. “A pioneering, groundbreaking annual festival, which will present, recognise and celebrate women, and act as a conversation space for issues of all kinds. Through a series of debates, conversations, networking opportunities, presentations, showcases and places to meet and talk, WOW celebrates the potential and achievement of women and addresses some of the obstacles that women face across the world.”
WOW runs over three days from 11-13 March, current confirmed artist's are Annie Lennox, Imogen Heap, Emmy The Great, VV Brown, Speech Debelle, Paloma Faith, Kate Nash and Micachu, plus many more to be announced.
