Woman Scream has been a vehicle for the voice of hundreds poets and artists in over thirty different countries to be heard. Its goal is to raise awareness of important issues, such as violence against women, and to foster the self-esteem of women worldwide. The festival encourages both men and women to do this by using their most creative tools - words and art.
Woman Scream events run world-wide throughout March, which is International Women’s Month. In 2015, the festival will take place in Sydney on:
Date: 6 March
Time: 6:30pm -10pm.
Where: Treasury Room, Sydney Town Hall, 483 George St Sydney, NSW
We would like to hear from individuals and groups who are interested in performing at the festival. We are looking for submissions which advocate for women's rights and speak out against violence towards women via: poetry; film; photography; art; music; dance; installations; cross-platform creations; collaborations, and more.
Both men and women are encouraged to submit, however all projects must have a relationship to women's rights.
