FWF has a new home at Queen Victoria Women’s Centre

FWF is delighted to announce we are making ourselves comfortable at the iconic QVWC – as our home base, and venue for our next festival in November 2020.

According to FWF Chair Foong Ling Kong: ‘The Queen Victoria Women’s Centre has generously supported FWF since its inception, and to formalise our association, and to now have a place of our own feels a little like a homecoming. We look forward to creating a bold and fierce program for next year’s festival, and provide a space for feminists of all persuasions to meet and engage.’

Says QVWC CEO Jo Porter: ‘We are delighted to continue our association with FWF and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership. Our ongoing engagement with women throughout Victoria will undoubtedly be enhanced by the conversations among diverse feminist communities with FWF over a concentrated weekend throughout the building.’

FWF will continue producing national one-off events, monthly publishing of commissioned works by, and Q&As with, feminist writers and thinkers, as well as enhanced podcast offerings. The festival, which began in 2016, will return for a weekend of programing 13-15 November 2020.
