Know My Name Speech – Dr Wendy Were

Speeches and Opinions
Nov 10, 2020

Delivered virtually over four afternoons and two evenings, the Know My Name Conference celebrated all women as artists, activists, researchers, intellectuals and mentors now and into the future.

Foregrounding First Nations perspectives and diverse voices, the event brought together leading and emerging Australian and international voices from arts and academia to share ideas, insights and creative practice.

Through keynotes, performances, panels, discussions and artist-led approaches, the conference considered historical and contemporary experiences of gender and feminism in the arts to imagine new futures.

Presented by the National Gallery of Australia, the Know My Name Conference was developed in collaboration with presenting partners the Australia Council for the Arts, Australian National University School of Art & Design, University of Melbourne and UNSW Art & Design.
