Think of what we can achieve if we join together on International Women’s Day to elevate the voices of women!
We’re eager to find out, so we’re hosting a free, family picnic event at The Briars, Mount Martha to celebrate women’s achievements and raise awareness against gender bias.
Join us between 4.30pm–7pm on Tuesday 8 March at The Briars to be immersed in the voices of local, diverse women. Our headline acts are:
We’re pleased to announce we have award winning broadcaster, journalist, executive producer and author, Tracee Hutchison back again this year hosting the live event. She will be interviewing these three amazing female vocalists along with guest speakers.
The theme for this year’s global International Women’s Day is ‘Break the Bias.’ Our event will celebrate the work of female creatives and boost our local arts and music industry. By bringing awareness to gender bias and taking action for equality we can break the bias in our community.
Are you in to help break the bias?
