If you haven’t yet seen our multi-award-winning documentary ‘Sisters for Sale’, you have an excellent opportunity coming up this Thursday 26th August.
As lockdown continues and more in-person events are postponed or cancelled here in Australia, the main events on our calendar right now are with the University of Sydney and the University of Melbourne.
University of Sydney screening
Ahead of this month’s ASEAN forum on human rights, the University of Sydney’s Sydney Southeast Asia Centre (SSEAC) will be hosting an online screening of ‘Sisters for Sale’ at 7pm Sydney time on Thursday 26th August. The two-hour event will also include a post-screening discussion with myself (the film’s director, Ben Randall) and the wonderful Kim Miller of Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation.
The event will be free and open to the public – it’ll be a fantastic opportunity to see the film if you haven’t already, and the discussions are always fascinating! You can put your name down here.
University of Melbourne conference
Kim Miller and I will also be hosting workshops at this year’s SCEAA conference on Social and Citizenship Education in a Disrupted World. The conference will take place on 25-26th November at the University of Melbourne and ACMI (or else online, depending on the COVID situation!)
My workshop is entitled “From the power of the individual to creating system change: Inspiring students to start where they are”. If you’re in education, academia, or the non-profit world, earlybird registration is now open here.
Taking ‘Sisters for Sale’ further
With the pandemic interfering with so many in-person events this year, we’re now working on sharing the ‘Sisters for Sale’ documentary and books in new ways with new audiences. It’s too early for a full announcement yet, but watch this space!
I hope you’re keeping safe and well out there,
