Join us for an informative and thought-provoking evening exploring experiences of displacement, participation and contributions to modern Australia by generations of immigrant and refugee women.

Leaving your home and establishing yourself in a new country can be a difficult journey. How to you maintain connection with the culture of your original homeland as you adapt to a new environment?

Join our panel of multicultural speakers, as they discuss historic and contemporary issues through films, readings and stories across cultures and across generations.

The evening includes voices from: German, Greek, Iranian, Italian, Kurdish, Sri Lankan and Taiwanese cultural heritage.
