Ideas Festival: Office for Women Panel Discussion

Posted Monday March 23, 2009 by John Gunders in |

For our Brisbane readers…

The Office for Women proudly presents ‘Beyond size 0 – is anything real?’

We invite you to attend an insightful and thought-provoking panel discussion hosted by the Office for Women as part of the Ideas Festival.

With new technologies, will real women’s bodies be necessary for the future of fashion? And if not, what impacts will this have on fashion, the media industry and women’s health and body image in the future?”

Join us as four expert panellists present their perspectives on the media’s impact on women’s body image and its implications for the future. Panellists include: writer, director and producer Phoebe Hart, Dr Angela Dwyer of Queensland University of Technology, Phillippa Diedrichs of the University of Queensland, and Tracy Whitelaw of MyCyberTwin.

Meshel Laurie, co-host of Brisbane’s Nova 106.9, will MC the session.

Be part of the Ideas Festival and see expert panellists examine the question ‘Beyond size 0 – is anything real?’
