The 2022 Women’s Festival will bring song, dance, conversation, learning and laughter to Lismore City Hall from March 4–8.
This year’s event, hosted by the Northern Rivers Women and Children’s Services Inc
(NORWACS), is aiming to involve more girls, young women and women in
The overall theme of this year’s event is ‘What’s Your Story?’
‘Our biggest day will be the Fair Day on Sunday 6 th March 2022,’ says festival coordinator, Emma Newman.
‘We have expressions of interest open until 24 th January for that day, but will start programming earlier, so get your forms in soon.
‘We are excited to be able to welcome people back to join in the festivities, discussions, workshops, dancing, singing, laughing, networking and relaxing.
‘We invite women and girls to get involved now and in the lead up.
Ms Newman said a great way to get involved was to submit a poster on any topic and using any medium – which will be displayed during the festival.
The Northern Rivers Conservatorium has run the Women in Harmony Pop-up Choir project for almost every year of the festival and will do so again in 2022.
They will be rehearsing in February, and women are invited to sign up if they would like
to sing harmonies, conducted by the talented Imogen Wolf.
Ms Newman said volunteers were also needed in the areas of administration, promotion, art and set up.
‘The festival is currently seeking financial support, so donations and enquiries about sponsorships and advertising in our brochure are very welcome,’ she said.
