Shine festival: providing inspiration and support for ladies of Ireland

Kicking off on International Women’s Day, the SHINE festival will bring together women from all over Ireland. It will feature over 80 speakers including Vicky Phelan, Laura Whitmore and Lord Mayor of Dublin, Hazel Chu.

SHINE Festival is an inspirational three-day online event organised by The Shona Project and it strives to create a support system for all the teenage girls of Ireland.

Starting from March 8, they’ll cover a host of topics ranging from mental health, career progression and diversity to the arts, sports and social issues.

Besides different panel discussions, there will also be organized a treasure hunt, goodies and vouchers will be provided, as well as some 3-minute mind hacks to get everyone up and moving.

The SHINE Festival is completely free of charge and talks can be accessed from anywhere. Attendees will join the 100 schools and 20,000 female students already registered to attend the event.

Speaking on the festival, Tammy Darcy, Founder and CEO of The Shona Project, said: “Like everyone else, the young women we work with have been hugely affected by Covid, they are feeling more stressed, isolated and anxious than ever before. SHINE allows us to provide them with the inspiration they need right now, and invites them to become part of an empowering movement of women who are strong, resilient and positive”.
