Celebrating women live from the Sydney Opera House
You don't need to go the Sydney Opera House to experience the main stage action of the exciting All About Women Festival. Enjoy an afternoon of stimulating discussion on contemporary issues for women on Sunday 4 March when Maitland City Library streams festival sessions live from the Sydney Opera House to Maitland Town Hall.
All About Women is a talks and ideas festival which is happening for the sixth consecutive year in Sydney and it celebrates International Women’s Day with a full day of discussions and events.
City Librarian Keryl Collard says, ‘The great thing this year is that you don't need to be at the Sydney Opera House on 4 March to experience the main stage action of All About Women. We’ll be live streaming three of the headline sessions and an exclusive backstage interview, direct from the Sydney Opera House.’
The All About Women stream is a free event and kicks off at 1.00pm but participants are encouraged to visit the Maitland Regional Art Gallery’s exhibitions beforehand, enjoy lunch at Café Seraphine and take advantage of a 15% discount in the Gallery Shop, which is stocked with work by women creatives from across Australia.
Maitland Mayor Loretta Baker says, ‘It is a pleasure to host such a vibrant festival in Maitland and I am excited to attend. This is a great opportunity for local women to connect with contemporary and challenging ideas, discussed by remarkable women.’
The stream is broken up into three sessions, including ‘Grabbing Back: Women in the Age of Trump’ from 1.00pm to 2.00pm, ‘#Metoo: The Making of a Movement’ from 2.30pm to 3.30pm and ‘Suffragettes to Social Media: Waves of Feminism’ from 4.00pm to 5.30pm.
To find out information about these different sessions and discover which influential women will feature, visit the Opera House website.

The All About Women satellite event is presented in partnership with the Sydney Opera House as part of the library’s Look Who’s Talking program.
