Time: 11:00 to 17:00 

Imagine a world led by women. How would it be different?

Alongside Belfast Photo Festival we're presenting a day of panel discussions and events to explore the essential role of women in art, activism and change making on Saturday 3rd June. 

This symposium seeks to encourage intergenerational dialogue on women’s roles in affecting societal change, and will ask questions about the continued lack of visibility of women in civic and political life. This will be explored by bringing together artists, curators, policy makers, activists and academics with a mix of panel discussions, engaging conversations and workshops.
