About

THE VOICE OF A WOMAN

women changing the conversation

Each year we produce THE VOICE OF A WOMAN FILM FESTIVAL & AWARDS.  The festival plays a vital role in presenting works rarely seen, created by or about women, to public audiences. The festival also features THE VOICE OF A WOMAN TALKS SERIES - comprised of panel discussions on a variety of subjects and one on one interviews with international artists about their works.

THE VOW AWARDS tributes women impacting culture, society and our world with their 'voice' expressed through the works they create, their own unique self-expression.

THE VOICE OF A WOMAN and its Youth, Leadership & Social Responsibility Projects - Traveling Series screens films to students in schools, universities and communities, sharing the stories and experiences of women globally and engaging students in discussions about the stories shared. 

Through various programs THE VOICE OF A WOMAN offers women and girls a 'voice' on the  issues that affect them most. We believe that the arts have the power to give 'voice to the voiceless' and in so doing empower.  Our programs are designed to stimulate imagination, creative thinking and to bring dialogue to issues faced individually or collectively and as a tool to develop full self-expression.

Our aim is the educate and empower women and girls.  To date we have delivered projects in: South Africa, Uganda, Tanzania, United Kingdom and the United States.

Each year we create opportunities and fellowships for professional artists to engage with and inspire the next generation of creative thinkers, leaders and change-makers.
