Gurls Talk, the online platform empowering young women created by Adwoa Aboah, teamed up with Coach and Dazed for a free, one-day festival
Last Saturday Gurls Talk hosted its first ever event in London in partnership with New York fashion house Coach being supported by Dazed. With over 700 girls attending the event, the day-long festival of female empowerment offered girls a safe and inspiring environment to find their voices.
“You guys are my tribe and I feel like I have spent a long time trying to find a tribe,” said Gurls Talk founder Adwoa Aboah with conviction. The free-admission festival was kicked off with a discussion on the importance of safe space for girls, mental health issues and female empowerment by model and activist Adwoa Aboah. “Finding you guys, finding my community is the reason why I am here today,” the founder extended a warm welcome to the girls.
The vibrant discussion was followed by a variety of talks, workshops and pop-ups. Speakers like model and intersex advocate Hanne Gaby Odiele and author and feminist powerhouse Laurie Penny were, amongst others, invited to take part. Alongside the panel, there was a programme of workshops, including a movement workshop with British choreographer Wayne McGregor’s troupe of dancers, a healing workshop by Dr. Lauren Hazzouri, a “Dream Station” by Coach and a photo studio – amongst so much more. Laura Bailey, Grace Wales Bonner, Serena Rees and André Balazs were also attendees of the impressive event.
Thank you Adwoa, for opening up about mental health and the importance of Gurls Talk – let’s get girls talking!
