What's On

A collaboration between the Invisible Farmer project and Her Place Women’s Museum Australia to celebrate rural women who work, protect and heal the land.

This installation honours the work of Victorian women strongly bound to the land. You will meet contemporary women farmers alongside a Yorta Yorta and Dja Dja Wurrung Senior Elder, a pioneering scientist, and a firefighter.

Together with a backdrop of the Australian Rural Women’s movement, these stories show women who have lived their commitment to the land and the communities who rely upon it.
