ActionAid at Latitude Festival 2019

This July, we’re returning to Latitude Festival for the fifth year running. There, we’ll be encouraging all festival-goers to come together, speak out and say #MyBodyIsMine.

Our tent will be packed with fun and empowering activities, including a surf simulator – where you can challenge yourself to ‘ride the wave of change’ – and designing a #MyBodyIsMine tote bag to take home with you.

To volunteer with us for a free festival ticket and help change lives for good, click below to apply. Applicants must be 18 or over.

Please note that applications close at midnight on Sunday 23rd of June.

We’ll also be selling our limited-edition #MyBodyIsMine t-shirts, with 100% of the profits going towards our work with women and girls living in poverty.

Take a look at some of our favourite moments from last year in our Facebook gallery.

Bringing #MyBodyIsMine to Latitude 

Whether you’re wearing a bikini at a festival, a uniform in a classroom or a trouser suit at work, you have the right to be free from harassment or abuse.

One in three women worldwide will experience physical violence or sexual abuse in their lifetime, most likely at the hands of someone they know. Beneath so much of this violence is a common idea: that women and girls’ bodies are the property of men, for them to exploit and control.

This is wrong, and it needs to stop. At Latitude Festival, ActionAid is encouraging women and girls to come together to say: #MyBodyIsMine. Everyone is encouraged to take part in all the activities, to show their support for #MyBodyIsMine and women’s rights.

Join us at our tent next to the BBC Music Stage to ‘ride the wave of change’ on our surf simulator or purchase a limited-edition #MyBodyIsMine t-shirt. Together, we can reclaim our bodies and shine a spotlight on violence against women and girls.
