Once Upon a Time in Australia

Sun 19 Sept

Cancelled
Once Upon a Time in Australia

Due to the capping of international flights to Australia, Ms Gillard has delayed her return from the UK so as to not displace a person in more need from being able to secure a flight and scarce quarantine spot.

In consultation with all involved and in response to on-going COVID travel restrictions this event has therefore been postponed until 2022.

Ticket buyers will be contacted by Brisbane Powerhouse and provided with a full refund.


Once upon a time in Australia the two highest positions in the country were held by women, 25th Governor General the Hon. Quentin Bryce and our 27th Prime Minister the Hon. Julia Gillard.

In and out of Office they have both been leaders for change and champions for women and girls. Together, they now reflect on their experiences, achievements, and how they think we can now build on this moment for change.

#Momentum

By WOW (Women of the World) Australia

Moment /ˈməʊm(ə)nt/ noun
1. a point of time; the turning effect of a force

Momentum /mə(ʊ)ˈmɛntəm/ noun
1. mass in motion

On 15 March 2021, thousands demonstrated together in shared rage and frustration at the diabolical state of gender relations in our nation. March4Justice was a rare moment but how do we turn this moment into momentum? Why is inertia so powerful in this space, what are the forces sustaining inequality, and who or what is going to change them? And why did it take gender inequality striking at the heart of White middle Australia before our institutions sat up and took notice? 

Four conversations tackle this from differing perspectives alongside performances reflecting the power of the arts to effect change.
