Presented by the University of Hull and WOW - Women of the World and hosted by Jude Kelly, CBE
WOW - What Now? is a major gathering to celebrate women and girls, and explore the issues they face both in our local community and across the globe.
Don’t miss this evening of discussion, creativity and collaboration, and have your say in WOW - Women of the World’s national conversation to discover what local communities are thinking about gender equality right now.
WOW - What Now? will look at the here and now; shining a light on the most potent issues affecting women and girls today – from politics to financial empowerment, toxic masculinity to the intersection of sexism, racism and homophobia.
At this event you’ll experience a WOW - Women of the World’s Think In – a unique interactive public planning session where you’ll be invited to discuss your thoughts on the issues affecting your local community and the world, share stories about the amazing women and girls you think should be celebrated. You’ll hear amazing stories and join forces to tackle the subjects that matter to people in the room.
Money will also be on the agenda, with a special Money Quiz to get you thinking about the importance of finances to women. Artist Nabeelah Hafeez will be on hand at the University of Hull's Arts Café to collaborate and create a new piece responding to the conversations taking place, weaving in stories and experiences from WOW - What Now? Events across the UK.
The findings from across the UK will be presented back at WOW’s 10th anniversary festival at London’s Southbank Centre from 6-8 March. Find out more about the festival here.
Following a series of highly successful WOW - Women of the World Festivals around the world, this important UK programme is funded by Spirit of 2012 and will celebrate the 10th anniversary of WOW in cities from Perth to Essex. Don’t miss your chance to be part of the conversation.
Doors open at 5.30pm, event starts promptly at 6pm
