In 2016 Queensland will expand International Women’s Day celebrations into a week-long, state-wide series of events and activities called Queensland Women’s Week.
The week will recognise and celebrate the achievements of all Queensland women, with activities taking place throughout the state’s urban, rural, regional and remote communities. These activities offer opportunities for women of all ages and linguistic and cultural backgrounds to join together in celebration.
International Women’s Day, held globally on 8 March each year, will be a highlight of Queensland Women’s Week. On that day, Queensland women join millions of others throughout the world to celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women in the past, present and future.
Grants have opened for funding between $1000 to $5000 to host events, activities, workshops, awards and more and are are available to support Queensland Women’s Week events and activities.
Eligible applicants must be
an incorporated, not for profit entity;
a Local Government authority; or
a Parents and Citizens Association under the Education (General Provisions) Act 1989.
