Apple will host a series of sessions titled “She Creates” worldwide to mark International Woman’s Day and highlight inspiring female creators using photography, design, technology, business, music and film to address tough topics, explore new perspectives and empower their communities.
Sessions will include a Design Lab with Sophie Walker — feminist activist, CEO of Young Women’s Trust, coding classes to create augmented reality experiences, a panel discussion hosted by AZ Magazine, an Art Lab with Jane Bowyer and Laura Bee to transform everyday photos into a work of art with patterns, sticks and colours, and a music Lab with the opportunity to remix Alicia Keys song ‘Underdog.’
