What if there were no girls in the world?

Join us as we celebrate women in the arts with a panel discussion of inspirational and successful women in the arts sector, journeying through their experiences in the arts, why they chose the sector and their advice for the young women entering the workplace. Panellists include Seetal Kaur, Kathak dancer and Relationship Manager at Arts Council England; Delma Tomlin, Artistic Director of The National Centre of Early Music, and more!

This event concludes with a striking dance piece by kathak artists Jyoti Manral and Mansi Dabral exploring the pivotal role of women in the world, and what it means to be a woman from the perspective of an unborn child. From rejection to acceptance to power, navigate the rocky road of what it means to be a woman through the eyes of Kanyaa, the daughter.
