The Asian Woman Festival is the UK’s first of its kind event, smashing stereotypes and stigma to empower and celebrate Asian women of today.

The theme for the inaugural Asian Woman Festival is ‘identity’ and will feature panel talks, debates, workshops and creative performances from dance, music and poetry.

The festival will also feature ‘Musings of Identity’, an exhibition displaying the work of up to 30 artists.

The artists involved highlight significant topics surrounding female identity and explore the various perceptions that may well be outdated amongst Asian communities in modern Britain. The purpose of the event/exhibition is designed to re-evaluate as well as reinforce a new energy.
