    International Women’s Day – Sunshine Coast

    Date: August 3, 2019

    Time: 12:00 am to 12:00 am

    IML’s annual International Women’s Day (IWD) seeks to change Australian society for the better by creating, supporting and championing women in Leadership. With company policies like affirmative action, maternity leave and blind recruitment helping to combat the pay gap and the glass ceiling, Australia is making progress towards equal representation of genders in business. While there is still considerable progress to be made, it seems that the importance of feminism is now more widely embraced than ever. Now, it is not the question of whether women will achieve equality in the future, but how they’ll achieve it. This year’s official IWD theme is #Balanceforbetter. From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate it’s presence. Please join Zoe Sparks who will discuss the theme #Balanceforbetter. The IML International Women’s Day Events are an inclusion Matters imitative at the Institute of Managers and Leaders and an IWD 2019 Flagship Event Please follow and like us:

    YAMATO – The Drummers of Japan

    Date: August 18, 2019

    Time: 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm

    A group of dozens of players start their performance by hitting a Japanese taiko drum made from a large 400 year-old tree. They move their whole bodies to strike the drum with everything in their souls, creating a powerful surge of energy. Their live performances are so full of intensity that they make people’s bodies jump and their hearts race faster. Audiences are overwhelmed by the beat of the music, as their bodies are uplifted in sync with the powerful sounds. This group, from beautiful Nara Prefecture in Japan, is able to exhibit great originality and innovation through this traditional Japanese musical instrument, the wadaiko (Japanese drum). This is the epitome of the Japanese spirit, a roaring sound that will make you experience new exciting adventures. Yamato was formed in 1993, debuting at a Shinto shrine festival in the group’s hometown with their original song “Hyu-ga (The sunrise).” Since then, they have been invited to 54 countries around the world, playing in more than 3,500 performances, and attracting 7 million viewers. Their performances, featuring various stage formations, have received raving reviews; their fame keeps spreading more and more, and the British media has even called their sound “The music of the body.” Yamato is based in a village called Asuka, known as the birthplace of Japanese culture, appearing in international performances from 6 to 10 months a year with an explosion of Yamato (ancient Japanese) spirit. They are proud to be the group with the largest number of international performances among all Japanese performing art groups. Please follow and like us:
