LISTEN is a FREE monthly event that gives you the opportunity to come into the ECU CBD Learning Hub and learn something new on your lunch break! This month, we are screening the documentary "The Punk Singer”, BYO lunch, everyone is welcome.

The Punk Singer is a 2013 documentary that explores the life and career of Kathleen Hanna, a musician and activist who made a significant cultural impact in the 1990s. It was directed by Sini Anderson, an independent filmmaker known for her feminist views. Anderson traveled with Hanna for about a year, taking footage of her both on and off stage. The film features many important figures in Hanna’s life, including her bandmates, fellow activists, and husband. It premiered at the South by Southwest film festival and was greeted with largely positive critical response.

Join us for tea and coffee after the screening and chat with Elle Fingers, President of Bunbury Roller Derby, co-founder of Riot Grrrl Western Australia, and singer of riot grrl band, Chickspit.
