Event description

Description

Last year, the Brisbane Feminist Festival discussed issues of toxic masculinity and the role of men in feminism. We explored LGBTIQA+ issues, the experiences of women in music, and the intersection between feminism and environmentalism. Last year, we debated what the future of feminism would look like one year on.

It has been one year and the Brisbane Feminist Festival is back to continue what we started.

Brought to you by the One Woman Project, this year the Brisbane Feminist Festival will be held on Saturday August 5 from 9am - 5pm. Located at WOTSO Workspace the event will feature panel discussions, workshops, presentations, live music, networking and stalls.

Our panel discussions will explore the experiences of women in politics and whether our Federal Minister for Women should be a feminist. We will look at the experiences of women in the Arts, Media and Entertainment industries. And we will take an in-depth look at the experiences of transgender women in Australia, their views on the current feminist movement, and how cisgendered individuals can better support this marginalised community.

Our workshops will focus upon upskilling - from exploring how to start a social enterprise, to how to build a social media movement, to how to be a feminist ally, and to how to engage in self-care and activism - these workshops will teach you everything you need to know!


Finally, our 'Your Story' presentations will explore the stories, lived experiences and paths of inspirational local people, such as the story behind She Skills, an organisation challenging stereotypes and teaching short courses in all things non-traditional, such as woodworking, power tools, building, car maintenance and more.

Keep your eyes on our website, social media pages and event page for the release of more of our fantastic speakers and for the final schedule for the day!

And do not forget to purchase your ticket here!

Your ticket will provide you with an all-access pass to the event, all the workshops and panels, and the opportunity to network with your fellow attendees!

Please note: registrations for the event will open at 8.00am, with the actual event commencing at 9.00am.
