Since 2013, LEVEL has presented an annual International Women's Day forum for robust discussions on art and feminism, seeking ways to create change through dialogue and activism. In 2016, WE NEED TO CARE will consider a diversity of positions on interconnections among women and ecologies.

This forum will address the often problematic connections that have historically been drawn between women and nature, but also how artists, curators, and writers critique exploitation of earth's ecologies and resources. It will consider the role of feminism and art as a catalyst for change and for advancing indigenous values and care-focused ethics – recognising the position of self as relational and interdependent to others, including nature.

LEVEL is an artist-run initiative and feminist collective which was founded in 2010 by Rachael Haynes, Courtney Coombs and Alice Lang, with Caitlin Franzmann, Courtney Pedersen and Anita Holtsclaw joining in 2013. LEVEL is focused on generating dialogue around gender, feminism and contemporary art through projects in different locations and contexts, manifesting as exhibitions, discussions, workshops and participatory artworks. LEVEL seeks to provide a new platform for discussion; LEVELing the playing field.
