International Women's Day 2024

Past Event

Join us on Friday 8 March from 1.30-3.30pm at the Vic Park Community Centre for a memorable celebration of International Women's Day, dedicated to honouring and empowering the incredible women who shape our world. 

Surround yourself with great company at this free, informal community get-together where we’ll be introduced to the concept of Affidamento; a practice whereby one woman entrusts herself to another and in their uniqueness an exchange occurs which lifts and enables both.

Our afternoon will begin with a Welcome to Country and then we’ll hear about how this concept has emerged in the lives of Ingrid Cumming (Whadjuk woman of the Noongar Nation), Maryann Tsai (Reach Her Inc) and Karen Vernon (Town of Vic Park Mayor).

Following this, there will be time to chat in small groups and create something beautiful to share with a woman who you would like to recognise and celebrate, passing this circle of acknowledgement and affirmation well outside the room we gather.

  • Atmosphere will be welcoming, conversational and uplifting
  • Snacks and refreshments provided
  • Absolutely no prior knowledge or particular creative skill necessary (in fact, it's welcomed).
