POW! opens at Turner Contemporary this week


Turner Contemporary is hosting the opening night of POW! Thanet, featuring mass choir rendition of Milck's I Can’t Keep Quiet, featuring singers from Thanet, and a sound installation called VOICE 100 from sound artist Emily Peasgood.

POW! is an annual 5 day festival across Margate, Ramsgate and Broadstairs, which coincides with International Women’s Day on 8 March. The festival encourages community involvement in local arts and cultural activities, and profiles the work of local female artists.

POW! events that will be taking place at Turner Contemporary include a medallion making workshop, an interactive family workshop that focus on issues around consent, and an all-women line up of poets and spoken word artists.
