Join us for a jam-packed weekend of power, glamour and rebellion at ACMI, with FREE live music, pop-up performances, workshops, screenings and more.

We shine a spotlight on local goddesses – business owners, filmmakers, creatives and screen industry shakers and innovators – to celebrate their achievements and inspire the next generation of trailblazers, agitators, and binary busters.

Hear expertise on a range of topics, including working in male dominant sections of the screen industry, making your own documentary film, running your own business and standing up to street harassment. Learn tips and tricks with make-up and hair demonstrations; take part in fashion, craft and dance workshops; enjoy improv comedy and live performances; and explore our blockbuster exhibition, Goddess: Power, Glamour and Rebellion.

Stand Up Against Street Harassment

training by L'Oréal Paris with Plan International Australia

The Stand Up Against Street Harassment campaign and intervention program, an initiative by L’Oréal Paris in partnership with girls’ rights charity Plan International Australia, is focused on raising awareness about street harassment, and providing training in the 5 Ds – Distract, Delegate, Document, Direct, and Delay – to support bystanders to safely stand up to street harassment when they see it.

Learn how to safely combat street harassment by taking the Stand Up training. Scan the barcode at the L’Oréal Paris machine (located on the Ground Floor at ACMI) to complete the 10 minute training and receive a L’Oréal Paris product in return.

L’Oréal Paris is a Supporting Partner of the Goddess Weekend.
