I enjoyed a thought provoking and energising evening last night with my lovely friend Eva (who you may know as the Director of Perth Festival of Yarn) at the ‘ThinkIn’ organised by Women of the World Festival.
Perth will host Scotland’s first WOW Festival during 27 – 29 October this year and the organisers are seeking our input to help shape the WOW Perth Festival, through a number of ‘ThinkIn’ events in Perthshire.
There is one more ‘ThinkIn’ event planned on Saturday 29th April from 10.30am to 12.30pm at Loch Leven Community Campus in Kinross.
If you aren’t able to make it along, you can still have have your voice heard by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org – which performers and speakers would you like to see; which subjects do you want to hear about; which subjects that are specific to Perth do you want to hear about; what do you feel are the most relevant topics for women today – this is your chance to have a say! And you don’t have to be a woman to have an input – whether you are a woman or know a woman, the organisers would like to hear your thoughts.
Founded by the Southbank Centre in 2010, WOW is now the world’s largest festival network of its kind, reaching over a million people in 15 cities across five continents. Each WOW festival – made up of talks, debates, music, activism, comedy, workshops, mentoring, pop ups and major concerts – celebrates women and girls, takes a frank look at what prevents them from achieving their potential, raises awareness globally of the issues they face and discusses possible solutions and brings together women and men to speak about how they are making the world a fairer place and why that matters.
