International Women's Day at ACMI

This International Women's Day come to ACMI to listen, think, question, discover and dance.

We’re reflecting on the past, questioning the status quo, looking to the future and most importantly celebrating women in film, television, videogames, art and digital culture.

Whether it’s talks, films, tours, VR or just a chance to let your hair down and dance, ACMI is the place to be on IWD.

Experience Joan Ross’ latest VR work, Did you ask the river?, or head down to The Clock and write your own feminist critique of this masterpiece of art cinema.

Hear from creatives and thinkers Santilla Chingaipe, Atong Atem, Nayuka Gorrie, Bhenji Ra and Lisy Kane as they share their experiences and challenges in response to recent cultural shifts, asking what has really changed and what needs to?  

Tour Screen Worlds to hear stories of iconic women in Australian and international screen culture. 

Grab a drink and listen to some tunes before joining Bhenji Ra and House of Slé for a performance and dance workshop. For the stayers, we’re ending on a high note with a DJ set by the internationally-acclaimed MzRizk.

The Pin Live: Where we at?

This powerful event will unpack and define the current state of the Australian identity. 

Nkechi Anele and Lucille Cutting are friends who connected through difference. As two Nigerian-Australian women of a similar age and background, Nkechi and Lucie had vastly different upbringings. One grew up in an urban environment surrounded by many cultures and the other in a small town in country Victoria.

Questions about race, identity and culture form the basis of their friendship and led to the development of The Pin – an online discussion platform run by biracial Australians for all Australians. Everyone deserves to feel safe to THINK about who they are, MEET amazing people and EXPRESS themselves. A lineup of thought-provoking guests will join award winning journalist and moderator Santilla Chingaipe for Where We At? — a live forum exploring contemporary thought on race, identity and culture in Australia
