The Audacious Women Collective would like to invite and support you to take your first steps on a journey to audacity. We have music, dance, art and books, all giving you an opportunity to Do What You Always Wish You Dared no matter what your interests, and to celebrate the achievements of audacious women who have gone before.

The next Audacious Women Festival will be the weekend of 20-23 February 2020. The programme's absolutely amazing thanks to so many fantastic ideas from our audacious women contributors. There will be women only workshops, fabulous performances, conversations and exhibitions.
