Come along to a Think-in and shape the WOW-Cambridge Festival
Think-ins are the planning sessions that help collect the ideas for events and topics to be included in the WOW-Cambridge Festival. They are opportunities to meet, network, share your ideas and help identify the key themes for WOW-Cambridge.
When are the Think-ins?
There are two Think-ins planned for:
25th April – 12noon – 2pm – University Centre, Cambridge.
26th April – 2.30 – 4.30pm – Parkside School, Cambridge.
What is WOW?
WOW (Women of the World Festival) Cambridge is a festival that celebrates the achievements of women and girls and also looks at the obstacles women face across the world. There is an arts and science programme, and a whole range of talks and debates on topics ranging from fashion and feminism, quotas, domestic violence, race, sex, food, women bishops and more in sessions for women, men, boys and girls.
WOW-Cambridge is an opportunity for Cambridge to share its ideas and highlight our local priorities for promoting awareness and understanding of issues affecting women here and around the world.
The WOW-Cambridge festival will be taking place on 26th October 2014 and 6-8th March 2015.
