Local women collaborate to deliver inclusive IWD events

A hardworking mob of sheilas have been flat out like a lizard drinking, getting ready to dish out two ripper International Women’s Day (IWD) gigs for Tennant Creek next week.

Under the savvy leadership of Barkly Regional Council and the Tennant Creek Women’s Refuge, a diverse bunch of women, backed by the top-notch support of the Northern Territory Government’s Office of Gender Equity and Diversity, as well as a stack of local outfits, have joined forces to make these events a cracker.

The day kicks off with a lively parade strutting down the main drag, starting at CAAFLU on Paterson Street and winding up at the Civic Hall on Peko Road, where the IWD Expo – a hub brimming with inspiration and empowerment – will be in full swing.

From 11.30 am, the IWD expo will be the place to be, with a bunch of stalls, plus yoga and art classes, quick health checks, a pop-up op shop, a photo booth, a roaming mic for a yarn, and a snag sizzle to boot.

This year’s IWD theme is all about inspiring inclusion and championing that sense of belonging, relevance, and empowerment.

Local outfits getting in on the action this year include CatholicCare NT, BRADAAG, Central Australian Aboriginal Family Legal Unit (CAAFLU), Central Australian Women’s Legal Service (CAWLS), Manungurra Aboriginal Corporation, Barkly Regional Deal Backbone Team, and Anyinginyi Health Aboriginal Corporation.
