"The program was great! Got to meet lots of amazing women and talk to them about their work. The space was inclusive, safe and happy. The stalls were very interesting and it was great to see so many people from under represented communities together at the same place! My friend and I left the festival hoping to attend another one soon."

"It was a fabulous event. It was well managed. The organisers have put great efforts to get the crowds and managed really well. I appreciate the work they are doing to encourage women and small businesses."
Sweety T.
Puresoul Collection
"This was my first ever market to sell my art and it was very successful... It was an amazing support to WoC creatives to sell their art with free-of-cost, as renting a market stall is usually very expensive... It has definitely exceeded my expectations, there were a lot more people (visitors to the market) than I expected so I was shocked with how much I sold on the day. Once again, thank you so much for making this event happen, and providing opportunities for WoC."
Nana U.
"I enjoyed the event. It was a very positive experience to me. Well organised, well prepared... It’s definitely exceeded my expectations, good vibes, the audience was nice and it was crowded too. I am grateful to have been part of it. Thank you so much."
