Ascolta Women is a collective of creative multi-generation Italian Australian, and Italian affiliated, women. They formed from the forum ASCOLTA! Listening to unheard stories: Italian Australian Multi-generation Women’s Experiences and Migration Legacies, and Writing Women’s Stories: Creative Writing Workshop, held on 13 and 14 March 2020 at CO.AS.IT Carlton. Since then the women, from around Australia and London, meet regularly on zoom to discuss, document and creatively express their shared and diverse experiences and reflections of Italian migration legacies within contemporary global and Australian contexts. Birthed at the commencement of COVID-19 in Australia, Ascolta Women bring their unique perspectives to the experiences of lockdown and quarantine during 2020 through short stories and photographs in their first publication: Stories from the Inside.
