If you are missing Mampalooza Sydney, there’s this!

So, you might have guessed, my friend and I are not putting together a Mamapalooza festival this year, celebrating mothers in the creative and performing arts. Hopefully we can host one next year.

However, there are some other events you might like to attend.

All About Women at the Opera House. A day of discussions, on Sunday 7 April. Looks good.

Amity Dry's musical about motherhhhod at the Seymour Centre, running 23 May to 1 June.

And, based on a stage musical, there’s Goddess at the cinema. I saw this, and it’s good. The characters are likeable and the songs are good, and I’m happy to support an Australian musical. (There are a few dodgy ideas though - that a woman has to take off her clothes to have a career; that you should stay close to home to keep your partner true to you; and why do women need a ‘women’s’ laptop?) 

If you'd rather stay at home, Q&A is having an all female panel on Monday night. Brooke Magnanti, Germaine Greer, Mia Freedman, Deborah Cheetham and Janet Albrechtsen. Click here if you have a question for the panellists to discuss.


And if you go to the Opera House event, or the musical, let me know how it was.
