She-Energy: Women as creators

June 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:15 pm


Our launch event brings together a dazzling array of international musicians, writers and poets to celebrate the energy and empathy of women’s creativity.

The centre-piece is a specially commissioned performance by acclaimed violinist and composer Anna Phoebe, signifying a symbol of hope as nations start to consider the implications of a post-Covid world. Filmed in the magnificent York Minster, the performance powerfully weaves together original music and contributions of poetry from an array of South Asian and British writers to create a mesmerising tapestry.

The event, which includes a panel discussion, has been co-curated through our partnership with amazing international festivals in India and Bangladesh, and by Anna Phoebe and poet Salena Godden. All have come together through a shared and passionate belief in the power of ideas and collaboration.

Join us, as through this unique partnership, we celebrate women’s voices, their imagination and their creativity. We hope you will be inspired to gain new insight and understanding of different cultural experiences and creators.
