Join a live satellite, direct from Sydney Opera House,
as Piper Kerman reveals lessons learned from prison.
Your host - Media Personality, Tracy Bartram
Frankston Arts Centre is partnering with Sydney Opera House to live-stream two sessions from the ideas festival All about Women in Sydney direct to our local audience on Sunday 6 March.
The event kicks off with prominent women discussing What needs to change? This remarkable panel includes Masha Gessen (Russia's leading LGBT rights activist) and Washington powerhouse Anne-Marie Slaughter who ponder the question "What would you do if you had the power to make things change overnight?". Following the panel is Orange is the New Black - your chance to hear from the real life Piper Kerman on what she learned about women during her incarceration and the lessons she carries with her now as an advocate for the rights of prisoners.
Media personality Tracy Bartram will MC the Frankston Arts Centre event and lead a Q&A session after each broadcast utilising her quick wit and ability to generate lively discussion that made her famous as a radio presenter on Fox FM, Mix FM and ABC. Tracy, a long-term supporter of the Victorian Women's Trust, is passionate about speaking up on issues that affect women and girls.
Join the local discussion about global issues!
