We Need To Act Forum

8th March, 10:00am - 4:00pm

Queensland University of Technology Creative Industries Precinct

Building on the energy that emanated from LEVEL’s previous forum, ‘Feminism and Art in 2013’, ‘We Need To Act’ will focus on the future, looking at what it means to act in the political sense, and how artists, curators and writers are attempting to create change. With a keynote presentation from one of Australia’s most important contemporary artists, Fiona Foley, and two panel discussions considering the meaning and form of political action in art and visual culture, ‘We Need to Act’ will provide a forum for the robust discussion of art and feminist activism in the 21st century.
