Rural women get together
From October 20-22, Grafton will host the 14th annual NSW Rural Womens Gathering.
Women in this state achieve excellence in many fields business, the arts, community building, farming, health, the media, and environmental care. These talents will be celebrated and explored.
The Gathering will feature a full program of workshops, entertainment, talks and tours with something for everyone from business, community development, rural issues, technology and social policy through to handicrafts, personal development, dance, yoga, music and indigenous cultural awareness.
The whole Gathering is also going live online with Project Sprout, which will involve locals and young people documenting the whole event and putting it live online for women everywhere to join in.
