Women & Business with Fleur Wickes, Writer & Artist

Price $34 NZD + BF Get tickets

Event description

Accomplished Whanganui-based writer & artist, Fleur Wickes, is coming to Palmerston North to speak at our Women & Business event on Tuesday 23 July - and we're excited!!

After a very successful twenty-year career in photographic portraiture, and with published short stories and poetry under her belt, in 2008 Fleur began drawing the words she wrote: the shape of the drawn words acting as an emotional landscape, adding depth and meaning to the poetry. Since then, she’s made a career and a studio as an artist working in word and image, using photography, drawing and painting as her medium.

Fleur weaves together powerful, emotional words with her arresting – almost typographical – art style. For Fleur, art, emotion and balance are all interconnected, acting as both a release for her own feelings and as a way to connect with others around the world.

What to expect on the night

Our events kick off with a networking session between 5.30 - 6.00pm so that guests can connect over a drink & nibbles.  At 6.00pm we head into one of the theatres at Globe Theatre for a presentation from one of our sponsors, and then our guest speaker, with audience Q&A + discussion following before the event is wrapped up at approximately 7.00pm.

Who can attend?

Women & Business is not just about women and business. It’s about so much more.

Our monthly events are designed for guests to connect, share resources, experiences and learnings and to exchange ideas and inspiration for personal and professional growth.

They are for anyone who identifies as a woman. Whether you’re young-ish or old-er, a business owner, non-business owner, volunteer or student, CEO or intern… or anything in-between!
