QRRRWN’s annual City meets Country Ekka Week High Tea.
It’s the time of year, once more, when Brisbane is abuzz as City meets Country at ‘The Ekka’. QRRRWN are excited again to extend an invitation to our annual Ekka Week High Tea, held on the first Friday of the annual Agricultural Show of Queensland.
This year’s event will be held on Friday, August 10th at the Ithaca Auditorium, Brisbane City Hall. As we gather at 2 pm, to share a glass of quality Australian Sparkling wine, there is ample time and opportunity to connect, create and maintain networks in a relaxed and lively environment. Over a sumptuous High Tea, multi-draw raffles and a silent auction raise much needed funds to increase QRRRWN’s capacity to support Queensland women to grow regardless of where “they hang their hat”. It is vital for us to be able to strengthen their skills and develop their networks, supporting them to nurture and lead others, all the while celebrating rural and regional resilience, diversity and richness.
Ithaca Auditorium is a splendid venue – with amazing light, marble staircases, mosaic tiled floors, chandeliers and vaulted ceiling – a truly a unique culturally significant heritage venue. We have chosen to return to Brisbane City Hall and it’s elegance and grandeur.
We welcome those from suburban homes, and equally, those who are travelling from rural and remote properties across the state and beyond to attend.
This year we are celebrating Storytellers: “Sharing Stories Creates Community.” This year we welcome a diverse panel of Storytellers who use a variety of media to inform, bridge gaps in understanding, to move, emote, heal, advocate and share, to create commonality and highlight difference. “The purpose of a Storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon.” – Brandon Sanderson. By sharing their stories, three incredible women will share their contribution and investment in their communities, sectors and state-wide.
We would love to see you at the QRRRWN Ekka Week High Tea event.
