Announcement of 2020 Festival!

The fourth Lismore Women’s Festival is coming next year and we are trying something new! The festival will be held over three consecutive days, offering a more condensed but rich experience of women up front, women on stage and women out loud. The 2020 festival will be built around the theme of International Women’s Day, “Balance for the Better.” It’s a chance for all of us to strike the right balance in our family, work and play. 

There will be plenty of opportunities to get involved in the festival through volunteering, donating, sponsorship and participation, particularly on International Women’s Day on 8 March. If you are interested in presenting or holding an event that contributes to the theme get on our mailing list by contacting Emma Newman: . We will send you the information when we do a call out for hosts shortly. We are already excited by the new look and feel!

If you are new to the festival, have a look at some of the photos from previous years on our website, or stay in touch by following the facebook page.  The Program will be announced in February so look out for it then!

If you or your organisation would like to become a sponsor big or small, please ask for a sponsorship package by emailing
