    It's back to the Sixties as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Jacqueline Susann's sensational novel Valley of the Dolls.

    The bestselling fiction book of 1966, Valley of the Dolls has sold more than 30 million copies - making it one of the bestselling books of all time (taking #1 spot on The New York Times Best Seller List for 28 weeks).

    Deemed sensational and crude at time of release, the book deals with the sordid lives of three young women seeking fame and fortune in New York City. Susann based the vicious characters and outrgeous scenarios on her own experiences in show business.

    Adapted into an equally shocking film which is now considered a cult/camp classic, Kristian Fletcher Events is inviting you to experience VALLEY OF THE DOLLS on the big screen - with a twist!

    The concept is simple: whenever a character on-screen pops a pill, or says 'doll' or 'pill', you eat a jellybean!
    Follow the prompts and enter Jacqueline Susann's world of booze, drugs and show business.

    Hosted by Kristian Fletcher

    Arrive early for pre-show 60s music and go-go girls!
    Screening 4pm

    Prizes for the best Sixties outfit

    Tickets $19.00 per person

    Robert Forster met Grant McLennan at the University of Queensland in the mid-1970’s; two undergrads with a shared passion for music, film, poetry and pop-culture, and a reputation for duelling sword-fights across the city traffic. After a bizarre audition and early rehearsals into a cassette player, they formed The Go-Betweens whose bohemian pop music full of literary allusions and local references stood out amidst the exploding local punk scene.

    The best kind of festival is where you do what you want, right? Right.

    Imagine sitting on the grass and gnawing on a giant hunk of meat from some of Brisbane’s Best BBQ Foodies whilst sipping on some of Australia (and the World)’s most delicious craft brews.

    And ’cause we love everything BBQ and Beer (and so do you), we will have some of the Masters of the ‘Que and the Brew showing us what they do, giving us an in-depth education and insider training. See who will be gracing the BBQ stage in the Festival Program.

    Cruise the BBQ Arena where some of Australia’s BEST BBQ Crews will be battling it out right in front of your eyes. They’ll tease you with their smoke and sauce creations, melting their meats to their final flavour destination whilst competing for a prize pool of over $15,000.

    Whichever way you want to plan your Roadshow, there will be a kick arse Live Music lineup to tickle your ear drums and play soundtrack to a truly awesome Summer Saturday.

    We bring to you the BBQ & Beer Roadshow. You’re welcome.

Their relationship ended without one word about the traumatic event that had preceded their breakup. Nine years later, Thordis reaches out to Tom via email.  Another eight years, and hundreds of searingly honest emails later, Thordis and Thom have decided they’re done carrying guilt and shame, and travel across the globe and meet face-to-face. Their extraordinary journey is chronicled in their joint non-fiction narrative South of Forgiveness.

    A Guide To Mindfulness – A Forum for Discussion

    Drop dead gorgeous, sassy and smart, Ruby Wax brings her new one-woman show Frazzled, based on her best-selling book ‘A Mindfulness Guide to the Frazzled’, to the Australian stage.  Once crazy, now less so, Ruby gives a tour of the mind – how to use it and not lose it. This event is a follow up to her sell out touring show and book ‘Sane New World’, which helped us understand why we sabotage our sanity with our own thinking. Graduating from Oxford three years ago, Ruby knows her stuff! The much-loved US born comedian, actor and writer has been honoured with the title of poster girl for mental illness. She might not be sane herself, but she does a pretty good imitation. Funny and insightful, this event is your passport to saner living.

    Lindsey Stirling remains fearless enough to always dream big.  The American electric violin extraordinaire, dancer, performance artist and composer will visit Australia & New Zealand this April for a national tour, performing solo headliner shows in Perth, Brisbane & Auckland and as part of Cool For Summer festival in Sydney and Melbourne.

    In four years since the release of her 2012 self-titled debut, the electronic music impresario, classically trained violinist, dancer, and artist quietly and humbly became one of the 21st century’s most innovative stars by clinging to her ground-breaking vision of cinematic violin-driven electronic music.

    Attracting nearly 8 million subscribers and 1.3 billion-plus views on YouTube by 2016, Forbes placed Lindsey at #4 on its yearly YouTube artists list, making her the highest-ranked female. Her headline tours would play to a cumulative audience of over 500,000 people worldwide, and her literary debut The Only Pirate at the Party—co-written with her sister Brook S. Passey—became a New York Times Bestseller.

    In Presence Through Movement, Kim Eng facilitates an awakening through the body and guides us in a harmonious synthesis of action and stillness. Using the ancient modalities of yin yoga, qigong, and tai chi, Kim weaves these three practices into a presence-infused flow, which helps to restore balance to your physical and energy body. This movement practice gives us an opportunity to observe, inquire, integrate, and release the old emotional wounds that Eckhart calls the "pain body".

    Suitable for most physical fitness levels, these movement practices stimulate and activate the body’s energy channels, clear energy blockages (including the pain body), and increase overall well- being and vitality. Through instruction, meditation, and movement, we access and learn to sustain presence in our everyday lives.

    For many years, the Australian public thought they knew Magda Szubanski. But it wasn’t until 2013, when Madga came out on national television and subsequently released her memoir, Reckoning, that Australia truly got to know the real Magda Szubanski.

    Please join us for this special breakfast with Magda, where we’ll delve deeper into Magda’s story of self-acceptance, her work campaigning for equality, and the woman behind the characters we all know so well.

    If there’s one thing we’ve learnt in recent years, it’s that when Magda Szubanski speaks, the people of Australia listen. And we can’t wait to bring her to the Business Chicks stage in 2017.

    n 2017 Brisbane’s famous Paniyiri Greek Festival will mark 41 years – a landmark cultural and celebratory milestone. Over four decades Paniyiri has grown to become Queensland’s signature celebration of all things Greek and the state’s largest cultural festival as well as the country’s longest running Greek festival – an admirable success story for the celebration that started in 1976 when a group of passionate Greek Australians wanted to share their cultural traditions with Brisbane. Fast forward to 2017 and this kaleidoscopic cultural explosion is now legendary. More than 60,000 are expected to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Hellenic Dancers with a range of celebratory events in the lead up, and over the weekend of May 20 and 21.

    Highlights include the introduction of a Greek Village Experience, a Hellenic Dancers Showcase Program, further development of the acclaimed cooking program starring starring the flavours and faces of Greece and a line-up of authors, chefs, speakers and home cooks; as well as the dancers, singers and stars that will make the third weekend in May taste, sound and feel extraordinary.

    The Walrus Club

    Drambuie, the infamous Scotch Whisky Liqueur, is celebrating the revival of its most renowned cocktail serve The Rusty Nail bringing the festivities to Brisbane with a 5-week bar experience ‘A Night with the Nail’. The evening will be hosted at The Walrus Club located at 543 Coronation Dr, Toowong, downstairs from the award winning Regatta Hotel.

    Jazz legend Herb Armstrong will be one of many treats awaiting patrons on A Night with the Nail’s launch on June 2. A Night with the Nail will continue its recurring ‘Drambuie-themed’ evening each Friday night until June 30 with an exclusive Drambuie experience and live jazz music, as guests enjoy the charm and seduction of the Prohibition-inspired speakeasy that is The Walrus Club.

    The Rusty Nail is a timeless whisky cocktail born in the infamous New York nightclubs of the early 60s and served at the renowned ‘21 Club’ frequented by Hemmingway, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and JFK 12. At a time when the legendary carousing of the Rat Pack came to prominence, the Rusty Nail was adopted by the scene, confirming the drink's iconic status and establishing its place in pop culture history.

    More recently, the cocktail was the drink of choice of Saul Goodman and featured in the very first episode of Netflix’s TV series Better Call Saul.

    Event Cinemas is gearing up for a pint sized takeover this June/July with the introduction of their winter school holiday program. Jam-packed with the biggest family blockbusters and FREE arts and crafts activities, the school holiday program is an extravaganza of film themed fun, rolling out at Event Cinema locations nationally*.

    Little ones will be spoiled for choice with a stellar line up of fun films this winter. Watch the legendary Lightning McQueen zoom past the competition in the exhilarating Cars 3. Join the return of Greg and his crazy family in the hilarious Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul. Or team up with the Minions for some mischief in Despicable Me 3.

    To compliment these screenings, Event Cinemas have programmed in free artistic activities that’ll have kids  using their minds, hands and creativity to make artworks to take home as a memory of their day out at the movies with mum and dad.

    Make like your favourite Wimpy Kid character and laugh out loud with some hilarious Diary of a Wimpy Kid masks. Kids can also design their own book cover just like the author of the Wimpy Kid series, Jeff Kinney.

    Children with a need for speed can get ready for the Florida 500 and create their very own Cars 3 Pit Pass and Driver’s License or transform themselves through DIY by making their own Minion goggles. Pint sized Picassos can also showcase their colouring abilities for the Despicable Me colour in competition and get the chance to win a totally awesome Despicable Me 3 prize pack!

    This fun, affordable day out with the entire family is made easy and affordable with the Cinebuzz Family Pass. Cinebuzz Members can see Cars 3, Despicable Me 3, or Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul at a discounted price** all throughout the school holidays. Available in variations of Admit 3 of 4, the Family Pass ranges in price from $30-$50.

    Bigger kids won’t miss out either with action-loving teens in for a treat when autobots roll out in Transformers: The Last Knight, while Spider-Man: Homecoming will have Marvel fans rejoicing as the web-slinging superhero zooms through high rise buildings to take on a new villain named Vulture.

    Join Event Cinemas for a school holiday filled with crazy and creative fun for the whole family. Check out screening and activity times at www.eventcinemas.com.au and start planning your trip to the movies!

    Message from the Artistic Director Katie Noonan

    Hear and be Heard. My hope for QMF 2017 is that Queenslanders from all walks of life will find their voice through music and that the power of song will help to shine a light on issues that impact us all. I am passionate about creating transformative musical experiences for audiences throughout our state. As a

    Queensland artist whose own career was kickstarted by QMF, I want to help the next generation of artists thrive. Across the Festival, talented Queenslanders will take the stage, standing proudly alongside world-class Australian musicians. No one does it like QMF – I believe our community engagement and education legacy is unrivalled. Our extensive program spans community, contemporary, classical and education events right across this big, beautiful state, involving a huge range of Queenslanders.

    To our many participants, artists, partners and communities, thank you for being part of this amazing journey – I can’t wait to hear your song!

    Jacob’s Ladder and the Metro Arts laneway

    Brisbane’s Jacob’s Ladder and the Metro Arts laneway will be given a new life this July with two pop-up art installations courtesy of performance collective The Good Room, designed to activate Brisbane spaces with world-class contemporary art by local artists.

    Supported by Brisbane City Council, the projects bring together more than forty of Brisbane’s best artists, creatives and writers in highly visual and engaging activations highlighting the calibre of work made by Brisbane artists.

    From Wednesday 19 to Saturday 22 July 20, Brave New Worlds will see a series of 40 flags, printed with new works of art, flying proudly along the familiar bright red staircase of Jacob’s Ladder, connecting Brisbane CBD’s Edward Street with Spring Hill.

    Turning silk flags into canvases, artists were asked to design a flag for the world they’d like to live in – offering up their vision of what qualities they want in a brave new world to come for hundreds of pedestrians each day.

    This installation brings together 20 of Brisbane’s best visual artists - including Courtney Coombs, who has exhibited her work around the world and is a 2012 Churchie Award finalist; Naomi Blacklock, 2016 finalist for Perth Institute of Contemporary Art’s national Hatched award; and two-time Archibald Prize finalist Sam Cranstoun.

    A week after the flags of Brave New Worlds come down, a new world pops up - this time off Edward St, in the laneway down the side of Metro Arts.

    A one-day event on Friday 28 July 017, This Frozen Moment is an audio installation showcasing more than 20 of Brisbane’s finest authors, poets, and spoken-word artists.

    Visitors will enter a heritage-listed laneway lined with suspended origami sculptures; each encasing a small speaker device that whispers a moment of a possible world, to combine as an installation of cascading whispers – a feast for the eyes and ears.

    Shy and law-abiding, gentleman farmer Robin Oakapple is working up the courage to ask the beautiful Rose Maybud to marry him. But he has a dark secret; he is the heir to a terrible curse befalling all Baronets of Ruddigore and has been living in disguise to escape his fate. When the truth is discovered, Robin is bound to obey the family curse that dictates he must commit a dastardly crime every day – or face a torturous death.

    Lindy Hume’s take on Gilbert & Sullivan, designed by Richard Roberts, will be an irreverent romp celebrating Victoriana in all its eccentricity. Ruddigore features many wonderful musical gems such as the ‘Matter’ trio and Rose’s ‘Etiquette’ song.

    We welcome back popular stars of Candide, Bryan Probets and Christine Johnston who will be joined by a stellar cast including Kanen Breen, Jason Barry-Smith, Roxane Hislop and Natalie Peluso as Rose Maybud. Gilbert & Sullivan’s Ruddigore, or The Witch’s Curse will delight, excite and entertain.

    Jacob’s Ladder and the Metro Arts laneway

    Brisbane’s Jacob’s Ladder and the Metro Arts laneway will be given a new life this July with two pop-up art installations courtesy of performance collective The Good Room, designed to activate Brisbane spaces with world-class contemporary art by local artists.

    Supported by Brisbane City Council, the projects bring together more than forty of Brisbane’s best artists, creatives and writers in highly visual and engaging activations highlighting the calibre of work made by Brisbane artists.

    From Wednesday 19 to Saturday 22 July 20, Brave New Worlds will see a series of 40 flags, printed with new works of art, flying proudly along the familiar bright red staircase of Jacob’s Ladder, connecting Brisbane CBD’s Edward Street with Spring Hill.

    This installation brings together 20 of Brisbane’s best visual artists - including Courtney Coombs, who has exhibited her work around the world and is a 2012 Churchie Award finalist; Naomi Blacklock, 2016 finalist for Perth Institute of Contemporary Art’s national Hatched award; and two-time Archibald Prize finalist Sam Cranstoun.

    A week after the flags of Brave New Worlds come down, a new world pops up - this time off Edward St, in the laneway down the side of Metro Arts.

    A one-day event on Friday 28 July 017, This Frozen Moment is an audio installation showcasing more than 20 of Brisbane’s finest authors, poets, and spoken-word artists.

    Visitors will enter a heritage-listed laneway lined with suspended origami sculptures; each encasing a small speaker device that whispers a moment of a possible world, to combine as an installation of cascading whispers – a feast for the eyes and ears.

    A party on the beach, drugs, booze and surf. But by morning a young woman lies dead on the sand, beaten and raped. Who is responsible? This incredible human drama examines the social impulse to violence within Australian culture, within young males, within us all.

    Blackrock, Nick Enright’s hard-hitting modern classic, is one of those plays that grabs you and does not let go. Blackrock builds on several interlocking themes, first of sexual violence, of class and generational conflict, and the difference between a friend and a mate.

    This unique collaboration between La Boite and QUT Creative Industries sees the next generation of actors, QUT Bachelor of Fine Arts, Final Year Acting Students take on the iconic young roles alongside an ensemble of professional actors.

    The Tivoli

    Tina Arena has been part of the fabric of Australian music and pop culture for the past 40 years. Her voice has sent shivers up the spines of three generations of music lovers from her early days on Young Talent Time, to her hugely successful debut album Strong as Steel, her incredible international success and ten times platinum Don’t Ask (1994), the multi-platinum In Deep (1997), and followed up in 2001 with the critically acclaimed Just Me.

    A 40-year recording career by any singer is an extraordinary milestone, and Tina Arena is the only Australian artist to earn a gold or platinum certification for each of her original albums, in every decade since the 1970s right through to now. In fact, every album in her career has gone gold, platinum or multi-platinum.

    Tina said, “Today I feel I have finally reached a place where I am 100% comfortable with who I am, and I am free to enjoy my life and my work. The past forty years have indeed been a journey from innocence to understanding, and I can’t wait to celebrate that with Australia.

    Openair Cinemas is back for another yearly stint of outdoor movie-going, and they're doing so with balloons and scares. While the annual event's season kicks off with Logan Lucky on October 6, their Halloween session is certain to attract interest.

    Those keen on more thrills, this time of the mind-melting kind, can follow it up with Darren Aronofsky's must-be-seen-to-be-believed mother! the following evening; however there's plenty of other movie magic on offer for the six weeks up until November 19. Atomic Blonde's action antics, Kingsman: The Golden Circle's irreverent look at espionage, and Blade Runner 2049's sci-fi sequel spectacle join the classic likes of Grease in sing-along mode and perennial fave Dirty Dancing.

    The 27-movie lineup goes on, and so does the rest of the fun, with alternative entertainment, live music and DJ performances also on the bill. As always, there'll be food and drinks available on-site — and not just popcorn and choc tops — and you can also bring your own booze-free picnic.

    A lot can happen in five years. Two people can meet, fall in love, get married and then see their wedded bliss come to an end. That's the tale of budding writer Jamie and rising actress Cathy in The Last Five Years, which sees him share their story from the beginning, her start at the end and work backwards, and both sing about it.

    Of course, a lot can happen in 16 years as well. That's how long it has been since the show premiered in Chicago, and then made its way to off-Broadway the next year. In 2015, it became a film starring Anna Kendrick. Now, Aussies Lizzie Moore (Kiss Me Kate) and Kurt Phelan (Dirty Dancing) are stepping onto Brisbane Powerhouse's stage and stepping into the narrative, in a production by the folks behind Carrie the Musical.

    Catch their efforts between October 7 and 14, with the show playing Thursday to Sunday between those dates. And, if you need an added incentive, let an account of how Moore and Phelan first met get you excited for their on-stage antics. At a surprise party for Wicked's Lucy Durack, they both hid in a bathtub.

    They're just three of the classes on offer at Portside between September 27 and October 18, when the Hamilton spot rallies its retailers and endeavours to teach you a thing or two. Concocting a Greek spread of dips, salad and halva; getting fashion tips over champagne; discovering to make sushi — also over champagne: they're all on offer as well, with everyone from Byblos and Gusto da Gianni to Atalanta and Sono involved.

    Throw in two wine sessions — one a blind tasting of six wines, the other dedicated to Moss Wood — and you could get a dose of tasty, educational fun almost every day of the week. Prices range from zilch to $125, and while some classes run multiple times, others are on-offs.

    Looking beneath the surface is becoming quite the rewarding pastime in Spring Hill. And, climbing beneath the surface as well. Fresh from being transformed into an illuminated wonderland, the suburb's reservoirs will be the site of another piece of art. This time, it's a blend of sound, film and kinetic sculpture.

    Don't be fooled by the rather plain name — Art in the Reservoir promises a creative treat over October 7 and 8. Open from 9am until 4pm as part of Brisbane Open House, it'll host a commissioned installation by artists Caitlin Franzmann, Dale Gorfinkel and Ross Manning. In keeping with the weekend's theme of exploring the city's spaces and considering its past, the work will ask visitors to contemplate the space's original use by evoking the memory of water.

    Just what that entails will be discovered on the day, but attendees are advised to wear enclosed shoes.

    Do you have a story that you want to share with the world? It’s likely that there is an audience out there keen to hear your message and be enlightened (or entertained). And every manuscript that isn’t brought to life equals an opportunity lost for both the author and the reader who is looking for that right message at the right time.

    At Brisbane Self Publishing Service we think it’s a shame many aspiring authors feel daunted by the process involved in publishing their book. That’s why we have developed our unique book publication framework – The Five ‘C’s of Self Publishing; a practical, user-friendly approach which demystifies the process of publishing a book. And, to kick start this process, we are presenting this strategy in a hands-on, informative workshop – TELL YOUR STORY Self-Publishing Workshop. During the  workshop you’ll learn about all of the stages required to transform your manuscript into a printed book and/or ebook.

    WORKSHOP FEE: $46.50 (plus admin fee); Early Bird Tickets available – $42.00

    Included in the workshop registration price:

    • A PDF copy of Self Publishing Checklist: The Five ‘C’s of Self Publishing
    • 8-page printed workbook to accompany Powerpoint presentation
    • A printed information sheet on standard industry book trim sizes

    “Cirque Africa has been called the ‘Lion King on steriods’,” said director Papa Africa, aka Winston Ruddle. The Zimbabwe-born Ruddle, draws many of his talented cast from the ranks of the Hakuna Matata Acrobats trained at the school he established in Tanzania in 2003.

    The show is uplifting, celebratory and joyous. It’s also a critically acclaimed acrobatic and dance experience, born of Ruddle’s desire to celebrate Africa’s colour and people with audiences all over the world.

    Award-winning company, Wax Lyrical Productions, presents the world premiere of Nineteen, a dark comedy about four young men, Noah, George, Adam and Josh, living in a share house. From the outside they seem like fun, loveable larrikins but underneath the bravado and binge drinking lurks something more sinister.

    From beers and brotherhood to loss and loneliness, this endearing story uncovers the hidden side of finding yourself in a world filled with complexity and confusion. Crafted from interviews with over ninety young people, the four mates at the heart of Nineteen reflect the hopes and fears of the next generation. Amongst the laughs and unmistakable Australian sense of humour, writer/director Shane Pike unmasks the complexity and fear our brothers and mates are living with which, if left uncovered, can result in the greatest of tragedy.

    Save day, rescue damsel, witty one liner, post credits scene. But Michelle Zahner doesn’t want to do that. She wants to ask the real questions: Why are there never pockets in lycra costumes? How do heroes make rent? What if there’s no villain? And why don’t we have a word for a male damsel?

    For this mission she’s combining storytelling, poetry, comedy and physical theatre. With an accidental superhero, a lost journalist and a girl who doesn’t need saving she explores what we expect from heroes, and what might happen if we get it.

    Four women not afraid to make a statement, throw shade at the modern world in this gutsy, high-energy circus production. Witnesses to a generation of YouTubers, Instafamous stars, ‘leaning in’ and ‘having it all’, they find a common thread in the tension between their internal and external lives.

    Defiantly tackling stereotypes, these women examine the different faces they present to the world in their professional and personal lives. Through group acrobatics and aerials this comedic, thought-provoking show investigates social expectations.

    As they say, “smiling gives you wrinkles, resting bitch face keeps you pretty.”

    Metro Arts, 109 Edward St Brisbane City

    Celebrate 30 years of the iconic movies PRINCESS BRIDE and DIRTY DANCING this December!

    On Saturday 2 December, Kristian Fletcher presents a series of special 30th anniversary screenings of the 1987 cult movie classics PRINCESS BRIDE and DIRTY DANCING at Metro Arts, 109 Edward St Brisbane City.

    Whilst home sick in bed, a young boy’s grandfather reads him a story called The Princess Bride: Buttercup has been chosen as the bride of Prince Humperdinck but still laments the death of her one true love, Westley. The result is a crowd-favourite and one of the most quotable movies ever made!

    Princess Bride was made for a modest budget and was a somewhat sleeper hit when first released, however great sales on home video has ensured its ongoing status and appeal.

    On the otherhand, Dirty Dancing was one of the highest grossing films of 1987 - making a profit of over $200 million. Early reactions to the film were mixed on, but it caught on with audiences during its cinematic run and has built a following, particularly amongst female audiences.

    Spending the summer at a Catskills resort with her family, Frances “Baby” Houseman falls in love with the camp’s dance instructor, Johnny Castle.

    Starring Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze. With a soundtrack of Sixties hits and some of the greatest dance numbers ever caught on film.

    Tickets for all sessions are selling fast!

    Tickets $12 (one movie) $16 (two movies) + booking fee

    "Revisit these iconic movies with an audience of fans - the ultimate way to experience these Eighties classics," Fletcher said.

    Kate Hudson needs no introduction. While she’s best known for her roles on screen, it’s the many other roles Kate plays that make her so unique. She’s a mum of two boys, founder of the hugely successful activewear brand Fabletics, best-selling author of Pretty Happy and her newest book Pretty Fun, as well as a passionate advocate for women and girls around the word – last month, she was one of 300 Hollywood women to launch Time’s Up, an initiative that helps women fight sexual harassment in the workplace.

    Kate was just 21 when she played Penny Lane in the movie Almost Famous – a role that earned her a Golden Globe and a nomination for an Academy Award. Since then, she’s gone on to star in everything from your favourite comedies like How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Fool’s Gold to dramas like Deepwater Horizon and the recent Marshall.

    We’re beyond excited to announce that we’re bringing Kate to Australia to speak exclusively for Business Chicks in February. This is our first blockbuster event of 2018 - tickets are now on sale here!

    Of the festivals unique mission, Festival Director James Hawthorn said, Our goal is to connect difference makers with those that want to make a difference. Films and art have the special ability to rise above the fray and affect people personally about some really important issues. By putting a motivated audience in the same room as the organizations that are tackling these issues head-on, buoyed by the support of celebrity. At the end of the films the audience has a shared experience, a shared understanding and if done right, a change can occur. Flicks4Change believes this is the perfect time for a truly transformative dialogue to start.” 

    The films topics will include: Disability and inclusion, mental health, Aboriginal affairs, LGBT issues, animal rights, suicide prevention, human trafficking and environmental issues.

    WOW – Women of the World

    Southbank Centre's WOW – Women of the World festival is a global festival movement launched by Jude Kelly CBE in London in 2010 (with the first festival in March 2011) that celebrates women and girls, and looks at the obstacles that stop them from achieving their potential. To date, WOW has been in over 20 locations on five continents, including New York and Baltimore in the USA; Ake in Nigeria; Hargeisa in Somaliland; Alexandria in Egypt, Tampere in Finland, Beijing in China; Karachi in Pakistan, Kathmandu in Nepal, Dhaka in Bangladesh; Colombo in Sri Lanka; more than 10 locations in the UK including Bradford, Perth in Scotland and Cardiff; and across Australia in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and in Katherine. It has reached more than 1.5 million people worldwide and this number is growing year on year.

    Each festival across the world – made up of talks, debates, music, activism, mentoring, pop-ups and performance – celebrates women and girls, takes a frank look at what prevents them from achieving their potential, and raises awareness globally of the issues they face and possible solutions. It reaches girls and women, boys and men from a broad range of social backgrounds and supplies a completely different sense of action and energy than a conventional conference approach. Speakers have included Malala Yousafzai, Christine Lagarde, Angela Davis, Salma Hayek, Annie Lennox, Gordon Brown, Julie Walters, Patrick Stewart and many more including hundreds of women and men who don’t have public profiles but are working everyday to achieve gender equality. More than 25,000 people came to WOW London in 2017, thousands more have come to WOWs across the world and festival organisers have collaborated on cross-continental projects. For further information please visit wow.southbankcentre.co.uk

    Tickets for WOW are sold as one, two or three day passes. This will enable you to choose between a range of conversations, workshops, lunchtime performances and demonstrations, which will take place every day from 9am to 5pm. The first 200 people to purchase an early bird three day ticket will also be invited to attend a very special opening ceremony on Thursday 5 April. Early bird ticket buyers will also get access to a Hot Brown Honey presale available until Tuesday 5 December. Access to each day’s sessions will be on a first-come-first-in basis.

    The flamboyantly eccentric troubadour returns to interpret his songs on a grand piano.  In this intimate performance, with his accent-thick vocals and dark, biographical lyrics, Patrick Wolf’s otherworldly stories will be hauntingly grounded. 

    The visually striking indie singer-songwriter hailing from South London is known for his confessional vocals and era-bending musical style.  A self-trained pianist, singer and producer,  Wolf is also a classically-trained violinist, harpist and composer, yet it is the imagination and ingenuity in his songwriting that have led to universal acclaim.

    In 2013, Peter Greste and his Al Jazeera colleagues were jailed in Eygpt for doing their job. PEN International, the world's leading association of writers, condemned this decision and agitated for the journalists' release.

    Last year, 262 journalists – a record number – were jailed around the world, most for alleged anti-government activities. In an era of 'fake news' and populism, freedom of expression and freedom of the press are under attack. This discussion, hosted by Founding Editor Julianne Schultz, will explore what this means, what is at stake and what can be done.

    Two of the country’s most popular and charismatic performers, David Hobson and Natalie Christie Peluso, return to OperaQ’s main stage this season as perfectly paired lovers Hanna and Count Danilo, in a lush and spectacular new production of Franz Lehár’s ever-popular The Merry Widow.

    Celebrated Australian director and choreographer Graeme Murphy sets Lehár’s classic operetta amid the Art Deco glamour, silky ballroom gowns, and intrigue of the salons and cabarets of Paris, with romantic trysts taking place in a Monet Garden!

    With money as its motivating force,The Merry Widow is a slick comedy of manners and mismatched marriages. Centred around the enduring yet prickly romance between Hanna and her playboy ex-lover Danilo, it waltzes along with couples falling in and out of love, and – after many misunderstandings – a final happy ending. And it’s all set to unforgettable melodies and dazzling dance numbers!

    A runaway hit of its era, this refreshing new production of The Merry Widow will seduce you, just as the characters on stage seduce each other, with effortless charm and grace, by transporting you to a glamorous world of waltz, high fashion and glittering parties.

    2018 is a landmark year for the University of Queensland Press (UQP) as we celebrate our 70th year as a fiercely independent writer’s press.

    To recognise UQP’s cultural contribution across seven decades of great Australian storytelling, we invite you to join us at the launch of our newly commissioned anthology, Reading the Landscape: A Celebration of Australian Writing.

    Hosted by literary editor of The Australian Stephen Romei, the launch will feature a panel of three UQP authors – Matthew Condon, Julie Koh, and Melissa Lucashenko – discussing their anthology contributions and what it means to be a storyteller in the 21st century.

    Tickets cost $10 and include a light lunch- get your tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/launch-of-reading-the-landscape-a-celebration-of-australian-writing-uqp-tickets-46429129777?aff=es2

    Reading the Landscape offers a unique narrative journey through fiction, non-fiction, and poetry as twenty-five UQP authors past and present consider notions of legacy, heritage, vision and hope. Participating authors include: Ali Alizadeh, Venero Armanno, Larissa Behrendt, Lily Brett, Gabrielle Carey, Peter Carey, Matthew Condon, David Brooks, Karen Foxlee, Kári Gíslason, Rodney Hall, Steven Herrick, Sarah Holland-Batt, Nicholas Jose, Mireille Juchau, Julie Koh, Melissa Lucashenko, Patti Miller, David Malouf, James Moloney, Josephine Rowe, and Ellen van Neerven. The introduction has been written by literary critic, academic and author, Bernadette Brennan.

    Matthew Condon is a prize-winning Australian novelist and journalist. He is currently on staff with the Courier-Mail’s Qweekend magazine. He began his journalism career with the Gold Coast Bulletin in 1982 and subsequently worked for leading newspapers and journals including the Sydney Morning Herald, the Daily Telegraph and Melbourne's Sunday Age. His recent books include Little Fish Are Sweet, All Fall Down, and Jacks and Jokers. His next book will be released by UQP in November 2018.

    Julie Koh was born in Sydney to Chinese-Malaysian parents. She studied politics and law at the University of Sydney, then quit a career in corporate law to pursue writing. Her debut collection of short stories, Portable Curiosities, was published by UQP in 2016. Her short stories have appeared in The Best Australian Stories 2014 and 2015, The Sleepers Almanac, The Lifted Brow, Seizure Online, Kyoto Journal, The Fish Anthology and Fixi Novo’s HEAT. Julie has been a finalist in the Qantas Spirit of Youth Awards Written Word category, longlisted for the Australian Book Review’s Elizabeth Jolley Short Story Prize, and shortlisted for the Overland Victoria University Short Story Prize for New and Emerging Writers.

    Melissa Lucashenko is a Goorie author of Bundjalung and European heritage. She has been publishing books with UQP since 1997, with her first novel, Steam Pigs, winning the Dobbie Literary Award and shortlisted for the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards and regional Commonwealth Writers’ Prize. Hard Yards (1999) was shortlisted for the Courier-Mail Book of the Year and the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards, and Mullumbimby (2013) won the Queensland Literary Award and was longlisted for the Stella Prize, the Miles Franklin Literary Award and the Kibble Literary Award. She has also written two novels for teenagers, Killing Darcy (UQP, 1998) and Too Flash (IAD Press, 2002). In 2013 Melissa won the inaugural long-form Walkley Award for her Griffith REVIEW essay ‘Sinking Below Sight: Down and Out in Brisbane and Logan’. Her new book, Too Much Lip, will be released by UQP in August.

    The Red Carpet Recognition Night – Celebrating Multicultural Australia. Which will be held on the 10th of November 2018 at the Brisbane Parliament House. In this year's celebration, we would like to show our gratitude towards all individuals who have supported our events in the previous years. It will be a spectacular night of cultural performance, fashion show, food and drinks.

    Initiated in 2015, Red Carpet Multicultural Fashion Show has attracted more than 400 attendees and 200 models from 30 different countries. Red Carpet Functions aspires to celebrate the diversity of Brisbane’s communities and emphasises on the appreciation of its diverse cultures. Our organisation recognises that fashion is a common denominator among all cultures, therefore our Fashion Show highlights the traditional attires of the country of origin of our participants. This show aims to eliminate the cultural barriers among diverse groups and inspires our community to further appreciate each other’s differences.

    Another important aspect of our fashion show is the focus on inclusivity, believing that everyone deserve to walk on a runway. In the conception of this Fashion Show, I invite all artists, performers and models to participate regardless of their physical attributes or mental disabilities. This show is the result of my experiences and the barriers I have seen across my career. By providing a show available to everyone, I aim to challenge the stereotypes of beauty and fashion by celebrating the differences of all men and women of Brisbane.

Wheeldon’s ballet is full of all the wit and charm of the original story by Lewis Carroll, as it follows Alice down the rabbit hole and into a topsy-turvy world where nothing is quite as it seems.

    Vibrant sets and costumes by the Tony Award-winning designer Bob Crowley draw inspiration from Victorian-era toy theatres, vaudeville and needlepoint samplers. His vision of Wonderland includes dancing playing cards, an eerily disembodied Cheshire Cat manipulated by puppeteers, and a slinky Caterpillar with 16 feet in bejewelled pointe shoes. Crowley’s dazzling designs are realised through puppetry, optical illusion, immersive digital projections and intricately detailed costumes complete with wild wigs and masks.

    Joby Talbot’s cinematic score combines the familiar strains of 19th-century ballet melodies with theatrical flourishes like ticking clocks and the purring of the Cheshire Cat, and weaves around the action onstage as if springing from the mind of Alice herself.

    The Australian Ballet’s production of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland© won the Helpmann Award for Best Ballet in 2018, and was nominated in five other categories, including Best Choreography, Best Scenic Design and Best Male and Female Dancer.

    With its delightful twists and turns, inventive visual design and vibrant original score, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland© is not to be missed.

    Announcing the opening of Look at Mee Pop-Up Clothing Store, Sunshine Coast, Qld, Australia

    Maroochydore, Sunshine Coast, Qld, Australia – Look at Mee announces the launch and opening of a brand new pop-up clothing store on the lower floor of the Sunshine Plaza in Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast, right next to Myers.

    The grand opening takes place on the 29 April 2019 and, being a pop-up store, this temporary women’s clothing retail outlet will operate for a total of 7 weeks.

    Not all modern women are a small size when it comes to clothing, and there has been a definite gap in the market when it comes to the availability of stylish, chic and beautiful clothing for the plus size ladies. Look at Mee fills this void, providing a range of trendy threads for the more mature woman who has a curvy, voluptuous figure.

    All clothing to be sold at the pop-up store are quality Australian brands, and as an opening day special, shoppers can enjoy a generous 20% discount on all clothing in the shop.

    As an added incentive, shoppers will be invited to join the Fashionistas Club, where they can earn rewards points and receive further discounts on online purchases. Members will also enter the draw to win a leather handbag valued at $185.

    There has always been a genuine need for retailers to cater to the plus size clothing market for women and Look at Mee is doing just that.

    About Look at Mee:
    Aside from running pop-up retail stores Beverley, the owner of Look at Mee, operates a successful online eCommerce store. With a huge passion for passion and a real flair for current trends and styles, Beverley’s online shop has something every plus size fashionista could want.

    Beverley knows first hand what it feels like to be shy and lacking in confidence, but after changing the way she thought about herself and changing what she wore, Beverley grew in confidence and recognised a definite need to help other women do the same.

    With so many online shops and high street stores only catering to more petite women in the teenage and early 20s market, Beverley knew there was a massive hole in the marketplace that needed to be filled, and it was a great business opportunity at the same time.

    Not all women in Australia are a size 8 or 10, yet plus size women need to wear clothing as well; and not just any clothing, but clothing that seriously looks great on them. That is why Look at Mee stocks clothing for today’s woman - Voluptuous Fashionistas!

    Look at Mee is about dressing and styling the woman that not only wants to look good but feel magic about herself, oozing with confidence in whatever she wears.

    All these fantastic clothing will be on show in the pop-up store at Sunshine Plaza, Maroochydore.

    It’s time to find your true north - the original transformational festival, Wanderlust is back with a stellar program. A global phenomenon, Wanderlust focuses on uplifting and empowering people through the practice of yoga, meditation, motivational speakers and much more.

    Celebrating the mindfulness movement, 108 Wanderlust events combine exercise, yoga and meditation for a chance to ground down among a likeminded community of vibrant and active individuals.

    Teachers, musicians, artists and creators gather together for three events in 2019, visiting Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. Tickets are now on sale.

    image
    • Brisbane, Orleigh Park – Saturday October 19
    • Sydney, Centennial Parklands – Saturday October 26
    • Melbourne, Alexandra Gardens – Saturday November 9

    The Wanderlust program kicks off with a pulse-racing 5K run, walk, prance, skip, stroll or strut, where participants can make it to the finish line their own way. This is followed by 75 minutes of yoga fuelled with DJ beats to build the rhythm for all levels of experience. Internationally renowned and inspirational yoga teachers Eoinn Finn (US), Donovan McGrath (US) and Michael Wong(UK) will take to our main stage and teach you how to maintain an inner body flow with the introduction of their unique brand of practice that has captivated our Wanderlust audiences around the world.

    Everyone then joins in to clear the mind with a 25-minute guided mass meditation session. Experience blissed out meditation with New York’s Biet Simkin (Sydney and Melbourne). Not only has she been called the David Bowie of meditation teachers but US Presidential candidate and best-selling author Marianne Wlliamson says "Biet combines a fabulous modern sensibility with an illumined understanding of eternal wisdom". As an accomplished music artist, Biet will also bring her mesmerizing vocals to Australia for the first time.

    At the Wanderlust Speakeasy participants will also have the chance to gather with prolific minds such as Kemi Nekvapil for a session on Building Personal Power, while Supercharged Food’s book author Lee Holmes will host a discussion on gut health and Dr. Nat Kringoudis will advise on Tuning In and Out to your hormones.

    For something new, before the run is a kickstarter dance party with Amplified Yoga, a new yoga movement not yet seen in Australia, along with an afternoon advanced yoga practice for those wanting to take things just a little further in developing their skills (Brisbane and Sydney only).

    To further recharge the mind, body and spirit, the Kula Marketplace will feature sustainable and eco friendly vendors across the health and wellness industries.

    Heading up Wanderlust in Australia is Radek Sali, owner of the Light Warrior Group. “This year’s events promise to be our most uplifting and empowering program yet. What could be better that immersing yourself in world class yoga, meditation, motivational speakers and much more, whilst surrounded by like-minded good people. Community POWER!”

    To join the leaders in the global mindfulness movement and discover the best personal practice possible, tickets can be purchased at www.wanderlust.com/aus/108s/ with early bird tickets $49 (for a limited time), regular tickets $65, premium tickets $95 and 108 VIP tickets $135.
