Curious About Culture Fest​

Festival Amplifying WoC Business Owners and Creatives


The Curious About Culture Festival was a one-day summer event hosted by The Creative Co-Operative and supported by The City of Melbourne (Naarm). We celebrated Melbourne’s (Naarm’s) diverse community of female creatives, entrepreneurs and performers.

The event schedule was loaded with live art, fashion and workshops from a range of cultures and emerging communities.


To amplify the voices and stories of underrepresented local artists, creatives and business owners that are from emerging communities.

Putting a talented line up of women in the spotlight, providing a platform to share their talents, meet new people and unapologetically represent themselves. 

This opportunity brought the Melbourne (Naarm) community together to drive community connection through accessible and sustainable practices over unique stories, goods and wares previously untold. As such, contributed to the City of Melbourne’s vision and goals. In addition we raised over $30K for the community.

Event highlights include:

  • Workshops with craft boss Kitiya Palaskas

  • Fashion photo shoot corner

  • Traditional Henna artistry 

  • Samba performances and interactive Samba dancing

  • Art installations

Plus over 40 women-led performances, stalls and social enterprises with eclectic wares. In #UniquelyMelbourne style, we hosted good music, food stalls and art.
