HARLEM, NEW YORK CITY - In this extraordinary, first-time collaboration, the Apollo and London’s Southbank Centre present a four-day WOW festival in New York, featuring performances, talks, mentoring sessions, music, film and debates that celebrate the talents of women and girls from all walks of life and all parts of the world.
WOW was founded in 2011, at London’s Southbank Centre. The Festival’s mission is to celebrate the formidable power of women to make change happen; to remind us of our history; to draw attention to injustice; to enjoy the company of women; and to encourage men to add their support as we set out to achieve a fairer world.
Please join us for this exciting, essential and empowering international gathering of women for four jam-packed days uptown in Harlem, USA, featuring,
• Leymah Gbowee - Nobel Peace Prize Winner
• Macy Gray - Grammy-Winning Singer/Songwriter
• Iyanla Vanzant - Emmy Award Winner
• Naomi Wolf - Bestselling Author
• Yuna - Malaysian Pop Star
