"Ladyfest is an international festival which has taken place in over fifty cities since 2000 and, in 2010, Oxford will be holding its third ever festival!

In May last year we held a week of events including a club night, gigs, workshops and a crafternoon, and in 2008 we had an amazing day with lots of wonderful female performers. Both events were in aid of Oxford Sexual Abuse and Rape Crisis Centre.

This year we want to build on the events of the past two years to make Ladyfest 2010 the best yet! To do this we need your involvement - please send your event ideas or any other suggestions to ladyfestoxfordatgmail [dot] com or send us a message on facebook. Regular meetings details will be announced soon.

We are looking for volunteer to assist with all elements of the festival, this includes advertising and promoting the event, booking acts, sound engineers, fundraising and many more. Many of the roles needn’t be time consuming or involve a regular commitment.

Ladyfest is a non-profit festival which presents and supports the creative talents of professional and amateur female acts in our community, including performances and workshops. The aim of the festival is to celebrate women’s creative talents and to raise awareness of the underrepresented and marginalised nature of women’s creative efforts. Both men and women, students and locals, are very welcome to be involved in organising our events, but we feel that to demonstrate the underrepresentation of women’s acts in cultural activities the performances ought to be women-only, or majority-women if not possible."
