8Eyez 'Female Takeover'

'Female Takeover’ hosted an evening celebrating International Women’s Day.

About

8Eyez presented and evening to celebrate International Women’s Day showcasing female talent from the local community. The group wanted to give ‘The next big act’ a stage to perform on in order to build up their self-esteem, stage presence, promote their brand and create a hype around the acts that perform.

Impact

The girls’ believed that emerging artists from deprived areas and backgrounds are often overlooked and don’t get a chance to showcase their talents to an audience outside of their immediate friendship group. 8Eyez wanted to break this cycle and  give these young people the opportunity to been seen by bigger audiences along with using this opportunity to celebrate talented women.
