Taryn Brumfitt, founder of the Body Image Movement and director of the upcoming documentary EMBRACE will be taking part in an exclusive Q&A event at Palace Barracks on Wednesday 20 July. This Q&A events gives audience members the opportunity to see EMBRACE before it hits cinemas across Australia on 4 August and the chance to hear Taryn Brumfitt speak in person about the making of this important and empowering film.

The Militant Baker); and motivational speaker Turia Pitt.
