When: 9th March

Where: Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Eton Avenue, London, NW3 3HY

On 9th March the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama will host a very special catwalk where women with HIV will manifest their strength though the outfits they have styled and designed themselves during the workshops. The Catwalk 4 Power will use creativity to celebrate women’s power, solidarity and resilience. Let us together challenge common perceptions of women with HIV as ‘victims’, and to honour and celebrate our power, resilience and beauty. The event will feature poetry, visual performances and a fashion show, all designed and performed by women with HIV.

The festival will provide women living with HIV across the nation with a platform to meet people and network, develop ideas, form action plan and position themselves as experts and activists. In addition, we will raise visibility of women living with HIV, get inspired and have fun.

Participation in the festival is by registration only. Positively UK will provide 10 full scholarship and 10 travel scholarships for women outside London to participate. To register your attendance or apply for a scholarship, please fill in the application form no later than 5pm on 4th February 2019.
