Sometimes an idea is so simple, that when it appears before us we can’t imagine why it hasn’t existed before – well, this Sunday January 18 at Lennox Head, such an idea has come to fruition with the inaugural Girl to Woman Festival.
The Girll to Woman Festival celebrates the beauty and grace of girls and young women in our communities. It’s open to everybody – dads, brothers and male friends welcome – and includes music, market stalls, workshops and presentations to support the health and wellbeing of young women and their families as they transition from girlhood to womanhood.
The day will include presentations, discussions groups and workshops from health professionals, teachers, community members, musicians, film-makers, parents, grand-parents and young people. The Festival is deigned to support girls as they navigate their teenage years – negotiating their way through the maze of modern life and the many complex issues it throws up.
