The WOW Karachi Festival will take place at the Beach Luxury on 1st May 2016. WOW Karachi is a one day festival celebrating women and girls, and looking at the obstacles they face from achieving their potential.
At a time when female voices have become immensely powerful as a force for positive change, WOW Karachi brings together women and girls, men and boys. We celebrate the moves forward in gender equality in Karachi and across Pakistan, and have constructive conversations about the complex realities faced by women and girls. WOW Karachi is part of a global network of WOW festivals which started in London but happen everywhere from Sydney to New York, Dhaka and Alexandria in Egypt.
Curating partners include Southbank Centre, British Council, and the WOW Karachi Core Committee of thought leaders from Collective for Social Science Research, Department of Visual Studies at Karachi University, Entrepreneurship and Community Development Institute (ECDI), Pakistan Institute of Labour Education and Research (PILER), Salt Arts, and ToffeeTV.
