What a wonderful festival week!


What started out as a planning meeting for how we could run our Festival Day, turned into 6 dynamic women planning a Festival Week!


We swiftly realised:

  • You cannot capture all the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai area has to offer women on one day that potentially has conflicting events.

  • International Women’s Day is an opportunity for many of the local women’s organisations to raise awareness of what they do and raise much needed funds.

  • There was no central space for how to access all that information

  • You can moan about a lack or you can be the change you want to see!


The Hornsby Ku-ring-gai International Women’s Day Festival Organising Committee was born!


We met each Monday morning at 7.30am at the PCYC Hornsby Ku-ring-gai. The staff at the PCYC are fantastic, the space welcoming and the parking easy!


The website was built, new flags and banners made, community organisations and businesses contacted and within 3 months the event was on.

30 events and lots of #lovemefirst and #pressforprogress conversations later we now start considering how we can bring more of the community together in 2019.

We hope the pictures of each of our events tell a story!
