We Need To Act
2014 International Women’s Day Forum
Saturday 8 March 10am-4pm
The Glasshouse, Creative Industries Precinct QUT Kelvin Grove

Building on the energy that emanated from LEVEL’s previous forum, Feminism and Art in 2013, We Need To Act will focus on the future, looking at what it means to act in the political sense, and how artists, curators and writers are attempting to create change. With a keynote presentation from one of Australia’s most important contemporary artists, Fiona Foley, and two panel discussions considering the meaning and form of political action in art and visual culture, We Need to Act will provide a forum for the robust discussion of art and feminist activism in the 21st century.
