Feminist Futures is a partnership with the Queen Victoria Women’s Centre (QVWC) to consider the future of work, care and class and technology through an intersectional, feminist lens. Across two months APHIDS will take up residence at QVWC in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. There we will collaborate with resident orgs and host a series of laboratories, workshops and roundtable discussions led APHIDS’ co-directors Eugenia Lim, Mish Grigor and Lara Thoms, with the aim of up-skilling ourselves and our community. Participants will include drone operators, film makers, artists, academics, dancers, adults without parents, gig economy workers and more. Stay tuned to our news section for our upcoming opportunities and events.

Drone Film Development
Led by Eugenia Lim APHIDS spent a week considering the possibilities of drone technology and tech in film making, in collaboration with participating guests, mentors, and film makers. On Wednesday 3 February we led a workshop with artist, choreographer and film maker Sue Healey and opened this to members of our community. Participants included Amrita Hepi, Alex Cardy, Rebecca Jensen, Devika Bilimoria, Sam Soh, Priya Pavri, Alex George and the APHIDS team.

Feminist Futures initiative is made possible through generous funding from Creative Victoria, The City of Melbourne, and support from the Queen Victoria Women’s Centre.
