W stands for women. Our project stands for female voices in the creative industries, changing attitudes, inspiring all.
To mark the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day in March 2011, Teo Connor and Loren Platt asked their network just one question — what does it feel like to be a woman working in the creative industries?
The responses were compelling. They were also beautiful, inventive and challenging. Through an exhibition, a symposium, short films and workshops, what was revealed was an appetite for change expressed in ways that resonated far beyond the events themselves; echoing out into the community where real change begins.
Every year since, the W Project has grown to become more explorative and more influential. It’s where fresh ideas are seen and heard as real-life projects in an ever-evolving programme.
