We’re very excited to present our final festival of the year which will take place from Friday 15 to Saturday 16 July at Logan Entertainment Centre. Following its postponement in 2021, WOW Logan has bounced back in 2022 with a strong local program to help ensure all women’s voices are heard through a series of bold, entertaining and conversation-provoking events.
Curated in partnership with local women in the community, WOW Logan will celebrate the achievements of women and girls living in the city and surrounding areas, while searching for solutions to ongoing gender injustice. Beyond the inspiring stories from women and girls and their own personal journeys in the popular WOW Bites sessions, the 2022 festival will feature a Marketplace of local women-led businesses and services, workshops and performances and the very popular WOW Healing Space.
Guests and performers include leading First Nations educator and author Jackie Huggins; Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Minister for Women and Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence The Hon. Shannon Fentiman MP; leading Queensland performance company Polytoxic and First Nation musician Jessie Lloyd joined by many performers and artists from Logan’s diverse communities.
WOW, Logan will kick off with a bang on Friday morning when students from Logan schools (years 10 and 11) will have the opportunity to hear inspirational stories from young women and girls who will talk about finding their passion, overcoming adversity during times of crisis and creating the community and world they wish to live in! They will have a chance to participate in interactive workshops, including designing communities, respecting each other with the team from YFS, and the WOW favourite, Speedmentoring! Here girls will have the opportunity to meet Logan women leaders and share their hopes, ideas and concerns about their future.

The festivities will continue on Saturday with all-day workshops, conversations and local stories celebrating the lives of women in Logan, the changing face of the city and some of the women at the heart of that change, including conversations on being a woman, building a business, the role of faith in women’s lives today and understanding and managing your finances.
Co-patron of WOW Australia June Oscar AO will also share the recommendations and next steps for the landmark Wiyi Yani U Thangani (Women’s Voices) report with an opportunity to contribute to the next stage of that work.
“WOW is an important space of dialogue and action which unites women from diverse backgrounds from across Australia and the world,” Ms Oscar said. “I look forward to working together and ensuring that the voices of First Nations women and girls are at the forefront of Australia’s fight to achieve gender equality.”
WOW Logan will also acknowledge the work of men in making a change in the area of gender injustice with a conversation led by respected MATE Bystander trainer Michael Jeh on the Making of Men.
Our work is needed now more than ever as both the pandemic and the national conversation on violence against women has shone a light on ongoing gender discrimination. Join us and help amplify the voices of women who must be heard.
