This Sunday, March 8, the Museum of Contemporary Art is taking its usual lineup of talks and guided tours and shifting the focus to women artists for International Women's Day.

Aiming to recognise and celebrate the achievements of women and their contribution to the industry, these talks and tours will be geared towards works in the MCA collection. Every hour, you'll hear from MCA hosts, volunteers and young guides as they tell you about their favourite pieces by talented women, with the 1pm tour highlighting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women artists.

Between tours, be sure to check out Favour Economy's interactive sound installation. Favour Economy is an ongoing collaborative art project exploring the femxle (including transgender and non-binary identities) experience of working in the arts, so expect a bunch of insightful audio recordings (or 'favours') from various artists and industry members. You'll be invited to respond to what you hear and resonate with on a huge piece of canvas, too.

The MCA is open from 10am–5pm. The first talk on the program will commence at 10.30am and the last at 4pm. Favour Economy will be open from 11am–3pm.
