This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Western Sydney University’s Western Sydney Creative in partnership with Penrith Performing & Visual Arts present a leadership forum for women in the arts. The forum is open to emerging, mid to senior level women, trans, non binary and gender fluid women working in the arts to further develop their managerial and strategic skills and to explore new approaches to inclusive leadership that resonates with women.

The forum is being held in connection with International Women’s Day 2024 and the exhibition, Women (seen), which draws from Western Sydney University’s art collection and loans from artists or their estate. It celebrates 20 women artists connected to Western Sydney through work, study, family, or home.

The full day forum will include keynote speeches and panel discussions about leadership in the arts and the future of leadership, a hands-on opportunity to learn about different leadership styles as well as encouraging and supporting women to create new paradigms of leadership.
