FEMME FIERCE RE-LOADED 2015: UK’s Largest ALL Female Street Artist Festival: March 7-8, 2015

Lest you forget–don’t worry I won’t let you–8th of March is International Women’s Day.

Last year the Femme Fierce a was in the exact same spot, trying to break the Guinness World record for a mural done by multiple artists. (Yeah, I still have no idea if they got the record or not.)

They painted the walls pink because the “girls” were using the event to raise money for Breast Cancer Care.

The festival has a subtitle (subtext?), anyway:  Femme Fierce: Leake Street All Girl Take Over.

Leake Street (tunnel) is also known as Banksy tunnel. Banksy has been accused, perhaps falsely, of suggesting that graffiti is an all male art. Hence the significance of the subtitle.

This year the charity is Plan UK’s Because I Am A Girl Campaign.

Apparently there will be upwards of 150 girls out there giving there all. Sounds a bit too dramatic. I will tone it down. 150 girls out having fun on an almost spring day?

SNAP. There are scheduled events. I. WOULD. LOVE. TO. LEARN. STENCILING. from THIEU.
