We all know the future is female and thanks to a collective of clever, creative and empowering Geelong based women there is a zine to prove it. The perfectly named ‘Fierce Females’ zine is about to launch into the world for the very first time and to celebrate they’re having a party!
The zine is a brand new publication that showcases talented local creatives who identify as women. Creator/Poet/Teacher/Mumma Annie Mullen – Walsh is obviously passionate about all things female, serving as an empowering force for women within the region. Joining her are graphic designer Stacey Williams and crochet cacti queen Zoe Boyd who are both Geelong based creatives. These are just a few of the many many names behind the creation of the zine, who are ALL female of course!
It’s no secret women in the arts are often under-represented and under-appreciated. Creator Mullen – Walsh firmly believes it’s important for all people to feel like they have a voice, are valued, supported and connected and to that, I say amen!
You can head down to Wah Bah on Friday 12th April from 6pm to 9pm to celebrate the launch with this wonderful group of women. While getting an opportunity to mingle with the locally based creatives behind the publication you will be serenaded by local songstress Jess Walters.
On the night they will also be raising funds for charities SisterWorks inc and Geelong Mums on the night, so be sure to bring some extra cash along.
You can check out the event on Facebook through the Fierce Females Zine page.
