Fifteen artists will present work that expresses their own original experience and understanding of what it means to be a woman, in a show that aims to educate and empower women and their right to choose alternatives.

The purpose behind this show is inspired by Loren Stevanja, a young woman who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

Purchasing a ticket, beverage or artwork on the night, will support Loren with means for choice in alternative treatment and therapies, which currently have no government assistance or subsidy.

We also hope to encourage discussion around the importance of individual experience within a system where woman are often faced with limitation and treated collectively.

We look forward to seeing you.

Opening night: 6-9PM
$10 DONATION ENTRY, online, or cash on door

Tickets purchase here:

*All proceeds, donations and art sales will support non-subsidised breast cancer treatment options for women and any funds raised in excess of our target will be donated to The Gawler Cancer Foundation and Yarra Valley Living Centre.
