Women dominate Wavescape Festival line-up

1 December 2017


The Wavescape Surf & Ocean Festival has announced a focus on women in an expanded line-up of ocean-conscious events in 2017.

Wavescape will showcase the talents of scientists, artists, photographers and activists who add a feminine voice to a growing chorus by some South Africa s most talented creative and scientific minds who use the ocean as their muse to advocate change.

Wavescape premieres the all-women surf film Blue Road, as well as Light Waves, a photographic exhibition of women in surfing by renowned photographer Saskia Koerner.

A strong female presence can be found in the bumper lineup of core favourites: Artboard Project, Clifton Beach Screening, Slide Night, Film Festival and Blue Ocean Master Class, while the iconic poster depicts a twist of the mermaid motif with a woman surfer morphing into a tentacled sea monster below the surface.
