An­gela Pip­pos Novem­ber visit

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

Across the Arts are thrilled that An­gela Pip­pos will be bring­ing her “Break­ing the mould” talk to their upcoming lit­er­ary lunch on Sun­day, Novem­ber 18.

An­gela Pip­pos is a jour­nal­ist, pre­sen­ter, pro­ducer, doc­u­men­tary-maker, au­thor and one half of Her Films.

Her Films was es­tab­lished in 2017 to cre­ate pow­er­ful doc­u­men­taries about women.

Through­out his­tory the sto­ries of women have largely been in­vis­i­ble - side­lined, ig­nored or for­got­ten.

With its fo­cus on sto­ry­telling, cre­ativ­ity and equal­ity, Her Films’ ob­jec­tive is to en­ter­tain, in­spire and bring about so­cial change.

An­gela has writ­ten, di­rected and pro­duced two tele­vi­sion doc­u­men­taries about the rise of women in Aus­tralian Rules foot­ball: League of Her Own, which aired on the Seven Net­work in Fe­bru­ary 2017, and Heroes, which screened on the ABC in Au­gust 2017.

An­gela is well known to lis­ten­ers of ABC Ra­dio’s Satur­day Grand­stand, as well as view­ers of Mel­bourne’s ABC TV News sports re­port in years past.

In Fe­bru­ary last year An­gela re­leased her sec­ond book, Break­ing The Mould – Tak­ing A Ham­mer To Sex­ism In Sport (Af­firm Press).

It pro­vides a fas­ci­nat­ing in­sight into the chang­ing Aus­tralian sport­ing land­scape and it made the Prime Min­is­ter’s Sum­mer Read­ing List as nom­i­nated by The Grat­tan In­sti­tute.

An­gela will be at the En­deav­our Room, ClubMul­wala at 12.00 for a 12.30pm start on Novem­ber 18 with tick­ets at $45 for non­mem­bers and $40 for ATA mem­bers.

This in­cludes a two-course meal, and a glass of bub­bles on ar­rival
