An incredible weekend at the WOW Manchester Festival!

We were thrilled to attend the first-ever Women of the World WOW Manchester Festival, organised by the WOW Foundation at Aviva Studios from 24-26 May 2024, surrounded by inspiring activists!

It was an honour to represent WOW Istanbul as part of the British Council Turkey delegation. Special thanks to everyone who visited our booth to learn more about our work and share their stories.

We were proud to share the booth with talented journalist and documentarist Duygu Demirdağ, whose documentary “The Story of the Survivors” tells the stories of the women of Hatay, Türkiye, who survived the devastation of the 6 February 2023 earthquakes.

From engaging workshops to powerful talks, the energy was contagious. The festival opened with the powerful story of Mel B, a former Spice Girl, who shared her journey and passionate activism in support of women. Connecting with so many dedicated individuals focused on gender equality was truly inspiring.

A huge thank you to the British Council for inviting us to be part of the WOW Istanbul delegation at WOW Manchester.
