Celebrate 2023 IWD

Join us for the official launch of the International Women’s Day mural by First Nations artist and proud Wadawurrung woman, Jenna Oldaker.

Jenna's mural will be unveiled at Wurdi Baierr Stadium in Torquay at the free celebration event - to be held Wednesday 8 March from 10am to 11am. The event will feature a Welcome to Country, Q&A and morning tea as we celebrate this year's IWD theme: Embrace Equity.

2022 celebration

To celebrate the 2022 International Women's Day theme #BreakTheBias, we created a short film that shares stories of local women who have overcome challenge and bias.

The film was shown at local community house-run IWD events in Anglesea, Torquay and Winchelsea, as well as a Lorne Country Club event. (Film by Roseneath Creative)
