We need to care
2016 International Women’s Day Forum
Saturday 12 March 2016, 10am – 3pm
The Glasshouse, QUT Creative Industries Precinct, Kelvin Grove
ALL WELCOME TO THIS FREE EVENT!
Since 2013, LEVEL has presented an annual International Women’s Day forum for robust discussions on art and feminism, seeking ways to create change through dialogue and activism. In 2016, WE NEED TO CARE will consider a diversity of positions on interconnections among women and ecologies.
This forum will address the often problematic connections that have historically been drawn between women and nature, but also how artists, curators, and writers critique exploitation of Earth’s ecologies and resources. It will consider the role of feminism and art as a catalyst for change and for advancing indigenous values and care-focused ethics – recognising the position of self as relational and interdependent to others, including nature.
Speakers include: Mundanara Bayles, Marisa Georgiou, Tallara Grey, Beth Jackson, Camille Serisier and Lilla Watson.
