Indigenous Women in the Arts
18 Jun 2016
13:00 - 15:00
Verge Gallery, Jane Foss Russell Plaza, City Rd, Sydney NSW 2050

Women in the Arts invites you to an afternoon of conversation and collaboration with a panel of extraordinarily talented Indigenous women working in the creative industries.

Dancemaker Amrita Hepi (Hollaback) will be talking with innovators in the arts about their experiences as Aboriginal women, focusing on practical methods for institutions and individuals to act as allies of Indigenous women in the creative industries.

The speakers will be engaging critically with issues relating to race and gender in the arts, in this solutions based forum, grounded in a lived experience of the structural inequalities of the arts.

This is a unique opportunity to listen to some of the most exciting artists and curators in Australia, explore practical actions to promote diversity and accessibility, in the creative industries.

The event is open to anyone interested in being an ally to Indigenous women, who are consistently underrepresented in galleries and institutions in Australia. It is also a unique opportunity to see some of Sydney’s most inspiring women come together to talk and make change.  

Please note that a pre-booked ticket does not guarantee a seat, there is limited seating available. Get in early to secure a seat!


This event is presented by Women in the Arts.
