Its time to shine people!
Shine is now live!!! And we’re joined by almost 100 speakers and nearly 40,000 attendees for the biggest, most kick-ass gathering of Irish Women ever! We’ve been working hard to build a festival that covers every possible topic that would interest or concern our attendees. We have also taken care to ensure that our speaker panel is diverse, so every girl feels represented, seen, and understood.
To take part, head over right now to the MAIN FESTIVAL SITE.

Heres what you need to know…
All of the videos are pre-recorded. There is no set or timed schedule of events except for 2 live events at 11 am on Monday and Wednesday for The SHINE heroes. This allows you to wander around at your own pace, and listen to those who interest you most.
Create a Shine Journal. After you listen to each speaker, we encourage you to think about how you can apply what you’ve heard in your own lives. Under each video, you’ll see a “For Your Journal Prompt”, so grab a notebook and join in!
Fancy a Treasure Hunt? We’ve got 5 amazing hampers to give away, which are full of goodies from our partners. Solve all the clues to be in with a chance of winning one.
Join The Pledge Wall. What do you love about yourself? We challenge you to share your thoughts on our Pledge Wall and celebrate all that makes us unique and amazing.
Go Live The festival site features a countdown ticker that will highlight the live Heroes events, at which we celebrate the amazing girls who have been nominated for their bravery, kindness, or community spirit. Watch out for a special performance from one of Irelands finest singer-songwriters.
Stay Social. There will be even more spot prizes available on Instagram throughout the festival. Make sure to stay tuned!
Please note that some videos will feature frank discussions on sexual health, grief, suicide, eating disorders etc. We will place warnings in the video descriptions, and also signpost to support organisations as appropriate.
