Femme Fierce Reloaded – 2015

FemmeFierce

Femme Fierce is the UK’s largest all female street art festival held on International Women’s Day, Sunday 8 March 2015. Following on from the success of last year’s event, I’m really stoked to be heading back to paint the tunnel amongst such a wide selection of artists and positive ladies. 150+ international and UK based street artists and graffiti writers will be creating murals that run the length of the walls of the Leake Street tunnel in Waterloo, London.

This years chosen Charity is Plan UK, which was chosen because of its ‘Because I Am A Girl’ Campaign and organiser Ayaan Bulale has been busy explaining the ethos behind this years event, via Kickstarter. This years event will include workshops, seminars, gallery shows and expand on last year to include a kids wall to help bring the next generation of female artists into the tunnel. For more info – please watch the Kickstarter video and check out the Femme Fierce Facebook page

Femme Fierce: Leake Street All Girl Takeover

Unity, Sri McKinnon and myself joined up with 100 female writers last weekend in Leake Street, London to participate in a Guiness World Record Attempt to complete the biggest spray paint mural by a team.. The event was organised by the Street Art Agency, with whirlwind Ayaan leading the way.. Its aim was to bring female street art and graffiti artists together, to raise money for Breast Cancer Care and to celebrate International Women’s Day.

A week long series of exhibitions and workshops has accompanied the event, with full info soon to be available on the Femme Fierce website. There’s a couple of pictures I took before my camera battery died, but for more coverage of the day, check out the video too.
