Take Up Space Festival

Big Joanie 2

Every March, we mark International Women's Day with a five-day celebration of community, collaboration and connection in Folkestone.

Bringing together brilliant speakers, artists, activists and makers from across the world, highlights from Take Up Space 2020 included banging beats from Big Joanie; spitting rhymes with Shay D; spoken word queen, Vanessa Kisuule; and Amy Bell, blending dance, text, and animation with a live digital soundscape. 

Connect, collaborate, gain strength and support each other to tackle patriarchy and to Take Up Space!
