THE VOICE OF A WOMAN

Women As Agents of Social Change

Changing the Conversation

THE VOICE OF A WOMAN - Women As Agents of Social Change - Changing the Conversation - celebrates women in the arts, activism and leadership, creative activists, those giving 'voice' to the individual and collective experiences of women and girls globally.

FESTIVAL

Each year THE VOICE OF A WOMAN FESTIVAL plays an important role in presenting the works of female artists, works rarely, if ever, seen in the mainstream.  Through the various works presented the festival provides a window for audiences in to the lives and experiences of women and girls globally to help to build awareness and galvanize support for a variety of social justice, civil and human rights campaigns.

As part of the festival, since 2009, THE VOICE OF A WOMAN TALKS SERIES - has engaged international artists, digital technology innovators, activists and other leaders in conversations before live audiences about their works.

Since 2011 THE VOICE OF A WOMAN AWARDS, have acknowledged the works - the 'voice', of leading creative 'influencers' and 'change-makers,' empowering role-models who are 'changing the conversation,' impacting culture, society and our world.

Since 2009 our Youth Leadership & Social Responsibility Projects have worked to inspire young people internationally, inspiring and supporting them to develop confidence and their own unique Self-expression, while planting the seeds of leadership and social responsibility, having them understand the difference they have the power to make to support a world that works for everyone.

Each year our Traveling Series screens a selection of films with accompanying talks in schools, universities and communities of greatest need internationally, building awareness of the experiences of women and girls globally, engaging youth and communities in awareness-building and dialogue about the concerns that matter most in communities and helping youth to realise their own potential to make a difference in their community and in communities of greatest need in our world.

Since 2009 we have delivered projects in the United States, United Kingdom, South Africa, Uganda and Tanzania.
