We need to listen 
2015 International Women’s Day Forum
Saturday 7 March 2015, 1-5pm
The Glasshouse, QUT Creative Industries Precinct, Kelvin Grove


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 2015, WE NEED TO LISTEN will consider the power of voice, our need to acknowledge a multiplicity of feminist voices, and the act of listening in the pursuit of equality. This forum will look at how artists, curators, and writers provide platforms for voice and encourage a willingness to listen to voices other than our own. Join us for a  panel discussion chaired by Susan Best, with speakers Ruth McDougall, Leah King Smith, Tyza Stewart and Carol McGregor.

The forum’s keynote speaker will be Arahmaiani, a significant figure in Indonesian contemporary art. Her work across performance, painting, sculpture, video, sound and installation has established her international reputation as an artist who challenges oppression and intolerance.

Join us for drinks after the forum at Boxcopy Contemporary Art Space with the closing event of ‘Sepulchre’ featuring new works by Anastasia Booth.
