2012 NSW Rural Women’s Gathering Committee ‘unplugged’

The NSW Rural Women’s Gathering is an annual weekend event organised by local committees with support from the Rural Women’s Network. The organising committee makes key decisions, develops a theme and the weekend program.

Each Gathering reflects the unique culture, industry, tourism and environment of the host community. Women’s Gatherings are for ALL rural women including: farming women; Aboriginal women; women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds; mining women; women in the fishing industry; women who live in regional cities, towns and villages; and coastal women.

Gatherings are a well established annual statewide community event for all rural women. The 2012 Gathering was hosted by Parkes in October.

The next NSW Rural Women’s Gathering is being hosted by women from the Upper Hunter in and around Scone 25-27 October 2013.

For more information contact Hunter Shire Council on 02 6540 1100, council@upperhunter.nsw.gov.au
