Starting from 1 March, in the lead-up to International Women’s Day, we will be hosting a series of activities as Women of the World Week 2021. Through digital releases of live and pre-recorded content and selected physical events, we will explore the power of arts and culture to contribute positively to gender advocacy. Working closely with WOW Foundation UK, and curators, partners, grantees in Nepal, although virtual, WOW Week encompasses the breadth of our past physical Festivals. It also functions as a follow-up to the conversations we started through WOW Virtual (2020) and the last physical edition in Janakpur, WOW Madhesh.
WOW Week will use the power of arts and culture, amplified by digital platforms, to reach stakeholders of gender equality with important conversations, stimulating performances, engaging stories and meaningful connections. Throughout the week, we will explore intersectional issues, offer mentoring and capacity-building opportunities and provide a creative platform for women/girls and gender minorities to influence public opinions and actions.
Registrations for closed-workshops being organised as part of WOW Week 2021 are open. Apply before 28 February. You can register for speed mentoring and WOW how-to below.
