Why Talk Town?
Talk Town was first held in 2016 on the occasion of Denmark being the host of the conference ‘Women Deliver’ – an international organisation for women’s rights.
Talk Town ran parallel to Women Deliver and focused on the Danish gender agenda by providing an international perspective. Talk Town also seeks to attract citizens, men as well as women, who have an interest in gender issues and want to know more.
In 2017 Talk Town returns as an arena to discuss sex, gender and men and women’s rights in society, culture, arts and politics.
Talk Town is a free and public debate festival running from the 18th-20th of May 2017 at the Main Library of Copenhagen.
The program for Talk Town is a wide range of panel debates, workshops mixed with social and artistic activities, dinners, concerts and performances.
