About Glasgow Feminist Arts Festival

Putting women front and centre, the festival programme promises to challenge you, make you laugh, make you cry, and maybe ask you to look in new ways at women’s lives and experiences.

At the Festival, we’ll recognise and champion a wide variety of experiences and identities, including those of: race; disability; sexuality; trans, non-binary and queer identities; and class (and many others besides). We’re aiming to bring together Scottish and international artists to celebrate women’s creativity and start exciting new conversations about how we move beyond #MeToo.

GFAF will feature films curated by Africa in Motion, Scottish Queer International Film Festival, Femspectives, and GFAF founder Rebecca Harrison, as well as music, spoken word, and performance. There will also be talks by an exciting line up of critics and academics involved in feminist activism, plus workshops and networking events to support artists and inspire audiences.

A new, feminist festival for Scotland, GFAF will offer opportunities to see old favourites, and discover brilliant new local talent. For programme announcements and details about how you can get involved, visit our website at www.glasgowfeministartsfestival.com.

The full line-up will be announced in September. Tickets will be pay what you can, and GFAF will be fundraising for Glasgow and Clyde Rape Crisis.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Feminist Arts Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
