The Apollo's 5th annual WOW: Women of the World Festival is an entirely digital, two-day program of dynamic conversations, workshops, and performances for and by women and girls from around the world – and Citi is proud to return as the Lead Sponsor of the festival!
This year’s theme, Black Women Transcending will mark this particular moment in time as we continue to endure a global pandemic and navigate the current political climate in the U.S., while simultaneously balancing self-care, family, community and work. More than 80 women are scheduled to participate.
Join The Apollo Theater for workshops and panel discussions featuring artists, thought leaders, authors, and activists including Adeline, Aunjanue Ellis, Elaine Welteroth, Gina Belafonte, Harriette Cole, Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, Renee Watson, Jessamyn Stanley, Julie Dexter, Nikki Giovanni, and many more!
Other highlights of WOW include a special Teen Summit addressing the role of young women and girls in policy making, a special conversation centered around the artist and activist Hazel Scott and a closing night program of short films by women in speculative fiction, sci-fi, fantasy and folklore, curated by Apollo Film’s ImageNation’s Cocktails & Sol Cinema.
*Your festival pass includes access to all conversations, performances, panels and workshops.
