In 2015, the first WOW Women of the World Festival was held in Brisbane. The Brisbane based organisers, Of One Mind, are now planning the second WOW Festival in Queensland at the Brisbane Powerhouse from 6 to 8 April 2018.

Here is your opportunity to contribute to the planning for this event!

The WOW Festival 2018 program will be built around celebrating the successes of women and girls in Queensland and the Commonwealth of Nations, as it will be held during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. The Festival will also identify the issues that are barriers to women and girls achieving their goals.

Many women have been consulted about the planning of this event, First Nations women, women in government and women in the general public from Brisbane, the Gold Coast, and in regional and remote communities - Bundaberg, Katherine, Lockhart River, the Torres Strait and the Channel Country.

We want to hear from you too!

If you are a young woman aged between 12 and 25 years we want to hear your thoughts and ideas. You can can share your ideas on the ideas wall below.

We want to know:

  • What are the most pressing issues you face as a young woman today?
  • Who would you like to hear from at the Festival?
  • Who do you want to see perform at the Festival?
  • What skills would you like to learn?

Although WOW is now a global event held in many cities and five continents, this will be the first ever WOW Festival to bring together women of the Commonwealth of Nations, to hear their stories, celebrate their achievements, and learn from their strength and resilience.
