Speak Up!


On the 125th anniversary of the day New Zealand’s parliament voted 20 – 18 for women to be allowed a voice, women in the arts gather to talk, debate and dig deep into some of the issues facing us in contemporary Aotearoa.

Kiwi creatives including broadcaster Karyn Hay; actors Miriama McDowell, Alison Quigan and Nancy Brunning; Auckland Writers Festival director Anne O’Brien; Silo artistic director Sophie Roberts and more take part in moderated panels and share their experiences and insights on subjects as diverse as modern motherhood, pleasure and consent, and what the future of feminism in the arts looks like.
Frank and fearless with large dollops of humour, humility and aroha for all, Speak Up! is a day dedicated to amplifying the voices of our wāhine and celebrating their influence on the world.
