Support our LEAP festival for female artists and women in the arts. Every pound donated will be matched (£1 donated = £2 received)!

by South Asian Arts uk in Leeds, England, United Kingdom

Driven by the idea of female empowerment behind the leap year (which was considered the only day a woman could propose marriage to a man), we want to present several events with a focus on the South Asian perspective that: 

•    are led by and feature women; 

•    discuss the unique experiences of women; 

•    and inspire women of the next generation to pursue success in the arts.

The intention of this project is to encourage an appreciation of women whilst also providing a platform for current female musicians, inspiring the next generation of female arts practitioners and promoting the arts as an area for more young people to actively get involved in, whether it is music, dance, or any other art form.

Please help us to put on an exciting festival featuring incredible female artists and arts facilitators; the proceedings will go towards events such as:

1) one interpretive and one Indian classical dance performance (with a preceding dance workshop open to the public)

2) a sitar concert by the Europe’s finest sitarist, Roopa Panesar

3) a ghazal concert celebrating the love, longing and loss of woman

4) a panel discussion featuring inspirational women of colour working in the arts 

5) most importantly, a musical presentation by SAA-uk’s young female sitarists (called Upstage), which includes rehearsals and composing music with Roopa Panesar!

It would be amazing to have your support to create an unforgettable festival designed to promote, support and exhibit the best of women in the arts!
