Toi Wāhine Festival - Hamilton

Wednesday 1 August 2018 - Saturday 11 August 2018

On September 19th 2018 New Zealand will commemorate 125yrs of suffrage in New Zealand and those women who fiercely fought for us all.  Nowhere is their legacy more strongly felt than in the Waikato, birthplace of  Prime Ministers Helen Clark and Jacinda Arden

With that in mind and with both men and women's voices all over
New Zealand demanding gender equality we present the inaugural
Toi Wāhine Festival.  

A festival that celebrates the creativity, ideas and actions of women from the past, the present and from the Waikato and beyond. 

This carefully curated and unique 11-day festival explores the diversity of women’s experiences through theatre, film, literature, comedy, music, workshops, panel discussions, practical skill building events, networking opportunities and other arts events.
Our aim.. 
To unite men and women from all over the Waikato Region and provide a platform from which to add their voice and stories to the current positive global movement.

Events held at Clarence Street Theatre, Meteor Theatre, Waikato Museum.
