High Five launches just in time for International Women's Day 2015

high-five-530 To coincide with International Women's Day (this Sunday, 8 March!), we've launched a new page on our website: High Five.

It's aim is to become a directory of guilds, associations, non-profits and other informal collectives that support, advocate for and promote the work of women in specific creative industries. We're starting small, and in the directory it you will find details about Parlour, which discusses issues and promotes women in Australian architecture; Women of Graphic Design, an international project focused on exhibiting the contributions of women in graphic design and exploring issues of gender-equality in education provided by design institutions; LISTEN, which exists to spark and cultivate a conversation around women’s experiences in Australian music; and others.

Check out the directory here and help us grow it by suggesting other industry-specific organisations aimed at promoting the work of women and inspiring debate about gender equality.

And don't forget to show the world how you are celebrating International Women's Day 2015 this weekend via your social media - hashtags include #seemejoinme and #iwd2015.
