Homeward Bound is a state of the art leadership, strategic and science initiative for female scientists, set against the backdrop of Antarctica. Over the next ten years Homeward Bound aims to build a network of 1000 women in science with the best skills in leadership and strategy execution working together for a sustainable future for people and the planet. The first expedition takes 78 women to Antarctica in December 2016, including 10 women from Victoria.

This August, the Brunswick Women’s Choir embarks on an exciting and unusual collaboration with multi-disciplinary artist Jess Olivieri. ‘May I suggest’ will be a series of unique performances for the Melbourne Art Fair.
Jess creates work that spans performance, sound, video, dance and installation. Her practice is concerned with the social and cultural factors that influence how we inhabit public space. ‘May I suggest’ will be the second in a series of works with women’s choirs. The first, ‘Hello’, welcomed visitors into the somewhat foreboding architecture of the new wing of the Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney.
‘May I suggest’ will take one of our favourite songs and use it to suggest new worlds of possibility to collectors. Schedule your visit to the Melbourne Art Fair for any of the times below to be part of this adventure.
