Strathfield Council together with members of the local and wider community, will celebrate International Women’s Day with a morning tea on Monday 8 March 2021.
Keynote speaker Erika Cholich will share her testimony on working in the visual arts industry as a woman and also provide insight into her own inspirational life experiences.
Erika will be joined by John Cruthers, Chairperson of the Sheila Foundation, a Sydney-based art curator, consultant, writer and collector. He will be sharing a bit about his work and Sheila Foundation’s research project that focuses on recovering Australia’s lost women artists from 1870-1960.
This event is being prepared to ensure it is Covid-safe by adhering to the guidelines and advice from NSW Health.
Registrations have now reached full capacity.
The outlay for this event is $30 per person and while Council is hosting the event free of charge to attendees, we encourage all attendees to keep this in mind and make a donation (to the amount of their choosing) to the Sheila Foundation, an organisation responsible for supporting women’s empowerment by ensuring equality for Australian women artists.
