WHO IS A Chorus of Women?

 


A Chorus of Women began with 150 of us singing the lament for the people of Iraq that led the 7.30 Report on 18 March 2003, when Australia went to war.
Eighteen plus years later, we are still singing up public wisdom. Peace, social justice and effective climate action are the matters of heart in our original songs, major productions and civic conversations.

The Singing Hill

 
Unknown to the dark suits shouting within
The women are returning ...

And the chanting is beginning
The humming has begun

-- from The Singing Hill by Dorothy Cameron (1990)

 
After the difficult months of lockdown it was wonderful to finish 2021 with the release of a new Chorus video that presents a prophetic women's story about Kurrajong or Capital Hill where Parliament House stands. Chorus voices joined storyteller and composer Glenda Cloughley in bringing The Singing Hill to life.

UPCOMING EVENTS

 

National Congress of Women



A Chorus of Women will be taking part in the 2-day National Congress of Women hosted by the Women’s Climate Congress at the Albert Hall, in Canberra on 11-12 September.

After a welcome to country by Ngambri-Ngunnawal Elder, Dr Matilda House, Glenda Cloughley will introduce the ‘The Singing Hill’ – a prophetic story about women at Parliament House from the early 1990s when Jo Vallentine was a WA Green’s senator.

There will be conversation sessions with former and current politicians, First Nations women, artists, community and business leaders. The first day will close with a short presentation from Senator Jenny McAllister, Assistant Minister for Climate Change and Energy, and A Chorus of Women affirming our commitment to the Earth with Glenda’s songs ‘Hymn to Gaia’ and ‘The Promise’.
  

The National Congress will focus around the ‘Women’s Charter for Change’ developed by the Women’s Climate Congress. On the second day, the conversations will broaden out into group conversations among participants to review the Charter themes and develop plans for action to bring about change. The event will close with a visit to Parliament House to recreate the women’s circle featured in ’The Singing Hill’.
The full program and registration details are here.
