Building banners for the bold
With International Women’s Day on March 8 only weeks away, the Queen Victoria Women’s Centre (QVWC) will hold its inaugural Protest Banner Workshop.
On Saturday, March 4 from 2pm to 5pm, the QVWC will host the workshop to provide the opportunity for people of all ages to “to talk, reminisce on the history of women’s protests, the art of political protest and to make new friends”.
“This is actually the first time the centre has run a protest banner workshop,” QVWC communications coordinator Natalie Forde said.
“We thought it would be a great opportunity around International Women’s Day to bring the community together in a fun way to create some iconic posters and banners.”
“The workshop will provide the opportunity for Feminists of all diverse backgrounds and communities to gather together and have their say.”
“There won’t be any restrictions on the messages, it’s really up to the participants to have their say. I’d say we’ll get a diverse mix of messages, political, cultural, and personal.” •
