We are very pleased to have devel­oped a com­mu­ni­ty events pro­gram that reflects our com­mit­ment to make our muse­um a use­ful resource to the local community.

We offer:

  • craft-a-noon after­noons with a knit­ters group, held on the last Sun­day of each month, 1.304.00 pm;
  • our Sto­ries from the Heart” oral his­to­ry pro­gram, held on the sec­ond Sun­day of each month, 4 – 5 pm;
  • twice-year­ly film nights. Our next film night is sched­uled for April 2016 — we’ll pro­vide details clos­er to the time;
  • twice-year­ly Q & A ses­sions where local organ­i­sa­tions can dis­cuss with gus­to top­ics of impor­tance to women;
  • per­for­mances from local and vis­it­ing artists;
  • an Open Day each year for Inter­na­tion­al Wom­en’s Day 8 March which fea­tures a guest speak­er. This year’s guests include Clare Mar­tin. More details to fol­low; and
  • our annu­al gala din­ner, which will take place this year on Sat­ur­day 5th March. More details to follow.

We also par­tic­i­pate in reg­u­lar com­mu­ni­ty ini­tia­tives that show­case Alice Springs, such as the Nation­al Trust Her­itage Week, the ANZAC Day Parade and Vol­un­teer­ing SA-NT Vol­un­teer Week. We also hold our annu­al Christ­mas Wrap stall which is an impor­tant fundrais­er for the Wom­en’s Muse­um of Aus­tralia. This stall is always set-up in the Yeperenye shop­ping cen­tre from the sec­ond week of Decem­ber until Christ­mas Eve. 


Mem­bers of a local knit­ters group meet at the Muse­um on the last Sun­day of each month, here enjoy­ing the autum­nal sun.
