Voices of Women presents an immersive evening of storytelling as we celebrate the winners of Embellishment!
Hear from our esteemed Guest Speakers as we announce the winning and highly commended stories – from the comedic to the intensely personal and tragic. Above all the stories celebrate resilience, success and our shared humanity.
Embellishment has developed from the gathering of women’s stories through workshops and open competitions from across Australia and the United States, with a focus on young women and First Nations stories.
