Event description

Description

Home is a complicated place. It can be a place of great warmth and comfort or it can be a place of pain and stress. This Mary Lee Exchange we bring together a group to talk about their experience of, and hopes for, home.

This time we're moving to Holy Rollers Studios in Prospect. Formerly a church it's now an artist studio and a community space of a different type. So if home is where your heart is, or if it's just a place you leave your hat, join us on Saturday 15th of July for Mary Lee #3

WHO'S SPEAKING AT MARY LEE #3?

Alexis West - Alexis has worked as a dancer, choreographer, performer, writer, poet, theatre and filmmaker over the past 20 years. As a Birri Gubba, Wakka Wakka, Kanak and Caucasian woman, Alexis is passionate about First Nation people’s voices as well as the stories of people with disability and people from diverse backgrounds.

Dee Michell - Dee is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Gender Studies & Social Analysis at The University of Adelaide. She is a 'late blooming' accidental academic, heading to university as a mature age student while raising 3 children and after a stint in the corporate sector. Dee now teaches social research and sociology and has eclectic research interests which pivot around social justice.

Sarah Dunn will take the conversational ropes as discussion with empathy and humor.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

A comfortable seat; a drink of your choosing; a thoughtful conversation between peers; an opportunity to ask questions and a place to make friends.

WHO WAS MARY LEE, ANYWAY?

Mary Lee is an impressive figure of the South Australian women’s movement. Mary is best known for the role she played as Co-Secretary (and then Secretary) of the South Australian Women’s Suffrage League in their fight for women’s suffrage. It is less well known that she also fought for, and succeeded, in raising the age of consent for girls in SA and that she continued to support and advocate for women’s education and women’s trade unions, despite her own position of poverty, well into her seventies.

Mary’s aim was ‘…to leave the world better for women than [she] found it’ and it is our hope that we can build upon, and be guided by, this broad aim in The Mary Lee Exchange.
