The Living in Australia Workshop will aim to hear from Asian, Middle Eastern and African women on experiences and issues faced while living in Australia as a migrant or refugee. The workshop will mainly provide a safe space to talk about any concerns faced in the Australian community as a woman from a cultural background. A morning tea and light lunch will be provided. The aims of the Shakti Organisation in our community and important issues relevant to migrant and refugee women such as domestic violence will be briefly discussed at the beginning of the workshop. Women from the Shakti Organisation speaking a variety of different languages will also be available to speak to on the day. The Workshop will be followed by the Shakti Annual General Meeting from 2:00pm - 4:00pm. If you would also like to attend the AGM, please register for the Workshop and the AGM. If you are interested in only the Workshop or only the AGM, select one or the other when registering online. Please remember to specify what cultural background you are from and which languages you speak when registering for the Workshop (there will be a section for this when entering registration details).
