A couple of months ago I was invited to be the guest speaker at a West Moreton Zonta Club Dinner. Tonight I had the pleasure of attending the dinner and talking about my arts practice and my role in the arts community in Ipswich.
I met a fantastic group of women doing wonderful work for women and the community. I appreciate the opportunity to present my work and learn more about the Zonta organisation.
Thank you for a wonderful evening of discussion and making new connections.
