"Ladyfest Edinburgh is a non-profit, community based festival designed by and for women to showcase the women's artistic talents across all artforms including visual arts, poetry, literature, music, dance, performance and comedy. Each year the group create an alternative cultural space for the creative expression of women. The events are predominantly women-run but all are welcome to attend. By providing an arts space, we aim build up strong links within the local community, working with a diverse range of individuals and already established groups across Edinburgh and the surrounding area.

We have links with the Edinburgh Feminst Network and Reclaim The Night groups, North Edinburgh Women Together and the Gude Cause group, as well as hundreds of individuals who have joined our online networks.

This year we will be introducting a Self Portraits project which aims to engage with young women by taking art workshops to their locales. We will be working with already established groups who can provide Ladyfest and the young people involved with a safe space to explore issues of identity through art.

The organising collective currently meets in the Crafty Room at the Forest Cafe on Mondays 6-8pm, and new members are always welcome."
