It’s A Girl Thing (IAGT) Zee LIVE
‘It's A Girl Thing’, an initiative aimed to empower, inspire and connect young women, is being brought to India for the first time by Zee Live, in partnership with internationally renowned events company Branded. Set to be held virtually from October 16 to October 18, ‘It's A Girl Thing India’ will host a large number of international artistes and mentors well suited to entertain and inspire an anticipated audience of millions of young women. The festival will build on its success in Singapore and the Philippines to make India the next exciting stop on its global journey.
It’s A Girl Thing India will be live on Facebook (@iagtindia and @iagtlive) from 7 pm to 9.30 pm IST on all three days between October 16-18, 2020. The festival will feature talks, panel discussions, performances and conversations around various subjects including Music, Health, Environment, Education and Self Love.
With a line-up of popular celebrities, creators, advocates and social media influencers from all over India, the festival has announced the participation of well-loved international personalities like Liza Koshy, Merrell Twins and Wengie. Also joining from across the oceans are climate change educator Robert Swan OBE (the first person to walk to both Poles) and Wendy Ong, President of Tap Music, which represent some of the most acclaimed female music artistes of today. With this powerful mix of local and international talent, there are multiple conversations and opportunities that will open up for young women at IAGT India - a one of its kind festival designed to empower and inspire.
Speaking on their association with IAGT, identical twin American YouTubers, actors, musicians and singers, Veronica and Vanessa Merrell said, “We truly love and believe in what ‘It’s A Girl Thing’ stands for. The smallest initiatives taken towards uplifting and empowering women have a positive, long-lasting effect. In today’s world, women are achieving great things and are acting as promoters of change. ‘It’s A Girl Thing’ is a much-needed initiative aimed at encouraging girls around the world and helping them realize their true potential.”
American actor, producer, and creator Liza Koshy said, “’It’s A Girl Thing’ is an excellent platform for girls around the world to use their creativity and talent to become movers and shakers. Without a proper platform, creators like me miss the opportunity to share stories with a global community. I am excited to see that ‘It’s A Girl Thing’ is now in India and I am grateful to be a part of it.”
“’It’s A Girl Thing’ empowers women to truly be themselves through inspiring stories and useful advice from women around the world with a diverse set of experiences. I am so happy to contribute to the current and future independent women of the world. I can see this platform will contribute to nurturing young talent,” said Wengie, musical artiste and YouTuber/creator.
“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it. ‘It's A Girl Thing’ and the 2041 Foundation have the chance to create action now. Starting with India and spreading across the globe, this initiative brings together young women from all backgrounds to become the next champions of climate change and leaders in sustainability. We must use opportunities such as ‘It’s A Girl Thing’ to join our efforts for the preservation of our planet," said Robert Swan, OBE, UN Goodwill Ambassador for Youth.
The three-day virtual festival, aimed to empower and connect young women, will feature conversations around Music, Health, Environment, Education and Self Love.
