This event is non-autonomous and is open to all students!
Changing. Unprecedented. Uncertain. Chaotic. Bewildering. Fucked. When trying to capture the essence of 2020, it’s quite difficult. Because when so much change happens so rapidly, people’s lives get impacted in extremely different ways. In a sense, that’s what ties 2020 together, this incoherence. These historic events we’re experiencing are messy, but we often know that final accounts of historic events are too neat and leave people out. That’s why in this year’s edition of Judy’s Punch we want to get the stories of people who get left out of history. As we are faced with the opportunity to invent a new future, we have the responsibility to ensure the present reflects your present. Whatever it may be.
The Women’s Department acknowledges that the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nations are the traditional custodians of the land upon which we will be holding this event. We acknowledge that this land was stolen and sovereignty has never been ceded. Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
