The Other Festival, comprising of an all-female line-up of makers and creators from different industries, is set to come to New York City June 11th at Spring Studios. The first all female event of its kind will include panels, workshops, performances, and mentoring by some inspirational women in fashion, film, art, food, design, and technology. Some of these all-star women who will speak at the festival include supermodel Naomi Campbell, actress and activist Rosario Dawson, and fashion designer Marissa Webb. This empowering event will also include classes to help female entrepreneurs gain the confidence and skills to start their own business and learn more about social media and branding. The festival will conclude with musical performances and Q&As with female sensations Justine Skye, Chelsea Layland and Brooke Candy.
“I’m proud that New York City will serve as the launching ground for The Other Festival,” said Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen. “Through The Other Festival we are giving the next generation of entrepreneurs and business leaders the tools they need to succeed.”
