THE FORT Screening & Fundraiser for Domestic Violence: Wed Mar 15, 2023

We’re excited to co-present the first U.S. screening of new Australian film THE FORT, along with our mates, Kate Dell’Aquila and Tarley Jordan, who are also Aussie women in New York.

Join us to help fundraise for domestic violence education and awareness at the Angelika Film Center in NoHo. Together we’ll watch the film and listen to a live Q&A facilitated by the Acting Australian Consul General, Karina Soltyszewski with Shaynna Blaze the film’s executive producer and co-founder of Voice of Change. 

You may have heard of Shaynna Blaze, the Australian interior designer and television personality known for judging the TV show ‘The Block’. Shaynna founded Voice of Change, a non-profit that champions meaningful education about – and action against – domestic violence through the arts. In fact, $10 from the sale of each ticket will go directly to Voice of Change.
