About the Show
In this conversation, we’ll hear from some amazing local activists as they discuss their work and the experiences that sparked their activism. These speakers – all of whom are committed to grassroots and community-level action – will offer tips, share strategies and trade stories of horror and triumph.How has the social and political landscape shifted over recent years – for better and worse – and what new forms of resistance are emerging? How do you navigate the intersection of the personal and political in the age of tribalism and trolls? What are the costs and rewards of activist work for women of colour in Australia today – and is their loud and proud existence itself a form of resistance?Our panel will talk self-care, safe spaces and changing the world from the ground up.This event will be Auslan interpreted.
