We’re thrilled to announce that FWF has received funding from the Victorian Government’s Office of Prevention and Women’s Equality. This generous grant will allow us to put on a four-day festival in Melbourne and regional centres in May 2018. Learn more here.

Thanks to all who attended our workshops and events in Melbourne and Canberra earlier this month. We had a fantastic turnout, and were privileged to host inspiring, important conversations. A big thanks, too, to our wonderful workshop hosts and speakers: Van Badham, Shu-Ling Chua, Carly Findlay, Jessica Friedmann, Rosanna Stevens and Louise Taylor.
