Throughout International Women’s Week the Queensland Government is highlighting the diversity of women and aims to empower and inspire women and girls to embrace and celebrate their unique qualities and experiences.
Women Initiating New Directions Organization (WINDO) has organised and collaborated to present events ranging from multi -media workshops, a creative high-tea event, three major exhibitions, thought-provoking Q&A events and a family Variety Show.
All are ready to hit the Noosa and Gympie regions with gusto.
WINDO Is an organisation designed to honour, support celebrate and advance women’s talents, innovations and endeavours across all facets of life and are delighted to have been supported by the Queensland Government, Noosa Council and Gympie Regional Council.
A plethora of talent has gathered and will make this WINDO 20/20 Vision Festival a true community event. Artist and entertainers will travel to and join other communities to celebrate women and girls.
Two major events for the Noosa area are ‘Woven Secrets’ exhibition and Q&A event featuring artist and tireless humanitarian worker Gabby Sutherland to be held at the J Theatre 10th March 2020 6.30pm.
Coupled with Gabby’s narrative is the amazing Ellie Shakiba and a number of young women who have moved forward from ‘life after detention’ on the island of Nauru and are now building amazing lives for themselves in Australia.
This is an exceptional event illustrating that united women epitomize true compassion and are fundamental to the support of other women who through their lives experience shame, bias cultural and social misunderstanding.
Do join us for a chance to meet some incredible women whilst you enjoy delicious canapes and a drink.
WINDO wishes to thank the Noosa Council for their contribution to this event.
