Are you inspired by opportunity and the stories of others? Keen to meet like-minded women who share a connection to agriculture and the environment? Don your favourite frock and add your own native floral accessory…it’s time for the 2018 Chicks in the Sticks event, hosted by North Central and Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authorities.
This month’s event is going offshore as it will take place on a riverboat cruise from Echuca! The forum focuses on the importance of storytelling, connection and the impact of increasing women’s visibility. Keynote speaker Bon Blake will discuss her passion for writing, researching and sharing the stories of rural and remote women, drawing on her experience of curating and editing, ‘Gulf Women, Voices from Remote North-West Queensland’.
Learn about improving your sleep and mental wellbeing with Royal Flying Doctor Service Senior Clinical Counsellor Cath Walker and visit information displays of Landcare and Catchment Management Authority projects. The women who deliver these projects will be on hand to share their projects or answer your Landcare and environmental questions.
The event takes place on Saturday 20 October, 2018, from 10am-2.30pm. Tickets cost $25 and the boat M.V. Mary Ann leaves from Riverboat Dock, Watson Street, Echuca.
