WOW has been working with BBC Arts on this brand new festival as part of its Culture in Quarantine season and will feature speakers and performers including Jude Kelly, Maxine Peake, Julia Gillard, Emma Dabiri, Sandi Toksvig, Rebecca Solnit, Gemma Cairney, Kieran Yates, Nihal Arthanayake, Liz Carr and loads more.
There are talks, sports, workshops and stories from the serious to the joyful; all of which will be captioned by Stagetext or BSL interpreted by Performance Interpreting. There’s everything from the Great Big WOW Quiz and emergency haircut workshops through to serious discussions on the devastating social and economic consequences for women and girls the pandemic is having.
