WOW Australia will deliver a series of events across Queensland in 2021 as an alternative to the multi-day Brisbane based WOW Australia Festival. A range of smaller gatherings and activities will celebrate the achievements of women and girls living in remote and regional areas and build program ideas for another major Festival in Brisbane in 2022. With visionary support from the Queensland Government as Principal Partner, WOW Australia events will take place across the State.
In true WOW Australia style, the highly anticipated programs will be developed locally by communities and contribute to the economic, cultural and social recovery of Queensland. Each of the events will see a partnership with a regional or remote organisation, building local capacity, as well as enabling knowledge exchange between rural and urban changemakers. The scale and nature of events will be flexible ensuring COVID-Safe experiences in line with Queensland Health guidelines at all times.
