8Eyez 'Female Takeover'
'Female Takeover’ hosted an evening celebrating International Women’s Day.
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.
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.
8Eyez has continued to run events since, introducing a new emerging artist each month and holding the Female Takeover annually. You can keep up to date on 8Eyez and all their exploits on their website by clicking here.
