About the WOW-Baltimore Festival
Founded by Jude Kelly, Artistic Director of Londons Southbank Centre, the WOW–Women of the World Festival was made to celebrate the formidable power of women to inspire change, explore womankinds shared history, draw attention to injustice, delight in female camaraderie and to encourage men to add their support to a movement that seeks a more honest world. WOW-Baltimore was inspired by BSO Music Director Marin Alsops participation in the inaugural WOW Festival presented by the Southbank Centre in March 2011. It also furthers the BSOs vision under Alsop to become a more accessible community resource that is both relevant in the 21st century and has a real and positive community impact. It has always been WOW-Baltimores intention to be an event for the community and presented by the community. In keeping with this ethos, the BSO held 10 community Reckon-In plotting sessions to help shape the content of WOW. More than 400 women (and men) responded to this open invitation to share their personal tales, discuss issues facing women in Baltimore and around the world and help plot the first-ever WOW-Baltimore. WOW-Baltimore is the first WOW Festival outside of London. The second annual WOW Festival at Southbank Centre, supported by Bloomberg, takes place on March 9-11, 2012.
