Broadside is the new feminist ideas festival from the Wheeler Centre. Over the weekend of 9 and 10 November at Melbourne Town Hall, Broadside will present two days of unabashedly feminist programming, spotlighting a remarkable line-up of international and local speakers, and delivering a powerfully feminist agenda. It’s about smart, funny people sharing their expertise and their stories.
The inaugural Broadside draws from the long history of Melbourne’s feminist organising and culture, struggle and collaboration.
And before the public programme, on Friday 8 November, young people from public high schools and youth organisations across Melbourne will gather at the Wheeler Centre for Broadside Teen Day, a tailored day of free talks and workshops designed to inspire community and action. It’s a space for young people, particularly those from marginalised communities, to come together to talk, to learn, listen and create, to develop their individual creative practice and make some collective noise.
