Date Time Event Description
Sep-28-16 06:30 PM WOW THINK-IN Join us for the WOW Think-In on September 28, 2016 at 6:30pm!   As a valued community leader, we will like to invite you to join us in conversation to help shape the next edition of the Apollo’s Women of the World Festival (WOW), a dynamic four-day celebration of women and girls.  The spirit of the conversation is to identify issues and themes that are critical to women here in our community, New York City and around the world.  Over the last few years, the Apollo Theater has boldly pursued expanding its season to include new programs that showcase contemporary works and artists shaping today’s cultural scene.   One of those new programs is the Apollo Global Festival, a biennial week-long event that brings thought leaders and dynamic new work from across the nation and world to this community.  The WOW festival is an anchor project under this new program.   Last year, the Apollo collaborated with London’s Southbank Centre and WOW Founder, Jude Kelly, to present the New York premiere of WOW.  This extraordinary event featured performances, talks, mentoring sessions and debates that celebrated the achievements of women and girls from all walks of life and all parts of the world, and examined the obstacles they face in achieving their potential.  The inaugural weekend featured Noble Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee; author Naomi Wolf; inspirational speaker Iyanla Vanzant; performer Macy Gray along with 128 speakers, panelists and performers.  We are thrilled to be presenting this powerful gathering again.  Founded in 2011, WOW has grown from an annual London event to a global movement with 15 WOWs taking place on 5 continents. In preparation for our next WOW scheduled for May 4 – 7, 2017, we’d love for you to attend this Think-In session on September 28, 2016 from 6:30pm – 8:30pm.  Please note, participation in this conversation does not imply or require long term commitment or investment in the festival - we just want to hear your unique point of view.  I hope you can join us for this lively discussion.
