Join Rebel Stepz and a panel of special guests to celebrate International Women's Day.

This will be a chance to hear from Melbourne's most talented and artistic women, leading the way in the Arts industry. This unique experience provides you with the opportunity to learn about the challenges our panel members have encountered because of their gender identities.

The event will cover topics relevant to this years theme, #breakthebias and will cover topics such as:

  • Do you Experience Male vs Female bias in the workplace and at home?
  • When facing gender bias at work, how do you respond and how does it make you feel?
  • Women supporting women vs men supporting women.
  • What are your experiences with different generations and how do they respond to you in your life/industry
  • As a woman, has your aesthetic affected how people have treated you within your industry and how?
  • Are there links between culture and bias? Have you experienced this? When/how?

You'll be invited to ask the panellists questions and take part in live polls and brainstorming exercises. This is about sharing information and inspiring each other.
There will be some live performances too!
Everyone is welcome.

Myself and my collective, Rebel Stepz, believes in making the Arts accessible to our community.
We create a fun, safe, educational and creative environment where people of all ages can not only connect with each other, but also with their creativity and with the amazing talent we have facilitating our workshops.

Every workshop we hold is an opportunity for everyone to discover a facet of the arts, whether that be through painting, singing, dancing, craftwork, film, acting, dance or music.

Each session is also a chance to support local artists, dancers, musicians, and all the other artistic professionals we are lucky enough to have right here in Melbourne and worldwide.

Rebel Stepz offers fun and educational corporate team building activities in Australia that increase workplace wellbeing, and encourages creativity whilst improving team morale.
Workshops can be organised in person (for those based in Melbourne) or online for other areas of Australia.

Choose from visual art classes, movement classes, craft workshops that can be mixed and matched over a day, morning or afternoon.

Rebel Stepz also offers live entertainment for your event which can include live musicians and dancers and even a custom piece that can be produced and choreographed especially for your event.
