• We are non-discriminate of gender and sexual identity


• To encourage communication between women and to provide a creative space and platform to inspire and empower women of all ages and backgrounds

• To promote self-expression in a non-threatening and non-judgmental environment

• To discuss feminism in the context of music, film, the arts, and performance as well as in how it affects our everyday lives

• To breakdown stereotypes, prejudice and cultural laws that are imposed on us

• To celebrate and promote the wealth and diversity of women's talent in the arts

• To challenge people's ignorance and prejudice, and to encourage individuals to see the personal as political

• To combat sexism within the arts

• To value and promote women artists based on the merit of their work. We want to end the ghettoisation of women's art and its present status as a novelty

LADYFEST BRISTOL is a positive outlet for our anger

in response to cowardly and insidious sexism that exists in our everyday life

this manifesto is a work in progress and will always be a work in progress

if you have a question, please ask us. if you have a problem, please tell us and talk to us.
