Celebrating International Women’s Day with a weekend of female powered creativity, Femme Fierce, the world’s largest all female street art and graffiti festival, returns to Waterloo’s Leake Street Tunnel on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 March.
For the second year, Femme Fierce unites the biggest names in street art, this year, fuelled by a powerful political agenda partnering with the Plan UK ‘Because I Am a Girl’ campaign. As a background and starting point for the 150 participating artists, the Leake Street tunnel will be painted Plan UK blue using 400 litres of recycled emulsion paint from Forest Recycling Project.
Spilling out from VAULT Festival currently taking place in The Vaults themselves, Femme Fierce: Reloaded will transform the tunnel into a vibrant outdoor gallery of artistic styles with large stencil murals on Sunday 8 March. Visitors will be able to watch the artists from around the world create their works from first stroke to final piece.
Alongside the main event at the weekend, Femme Fierce will be complemented by a series of talks, seminars and workshops with VAULT, including how to use spray paint using stencils, creating characters and even marketing for street artists.
Femme Fierce: Reloaded is part of VAULT Festival.
Femme Fierce takes place from Friday 6-8 March at:
