Women's Space

Womenspace is a place for women to come together in an inclusive community built on diversity, kindness and respect.

We are a solely independent women’s organisation with no affiliation to an external body.

Ludmila Doneman

I bring experience as a refugee from communist Czechoslovakia 50 years ago; later as a mother of a child with disability; originally as an actor, later as a community cultural developer, and festivals and events director. My current practice is focused on the importance of stories, especially stories of women who are transitioning in their lives – when the role of mothers, wives, employees is changing, when these women are finding new meaning. Having the opportunity to belong to the Women Space team and contribute to developing this community is important for my own transition. I am grateful for being a part of creating the Women Space stories.

Lyn Hickey

Lyn is a long time resident of Brisbane and has recently left work and is now transitioning into a new way of life. She fantasises about time in the garden and a neat clean house, but finds lunches and time spent with her woman friends much more interesting. Lyn brings a great sense of humour and fun to our board!

After 40 odd years in various organisations as a Projects officer and finance officer, she brings her well rounded organisational skills to the Womenspace management team.

Hi everyone, it is lovely to be a part of our Womenspace community. I bring with me experience as a teacher and a social worker. My passion is to assist people to live their best life, encompassing holistic health,well-being and building true and meaningful connections. I love living in Sandgate and the calm, relaxing nature of living close to the water. I hope to see you  at Womenspace  one day soon.
