Aunty Fay Carter, Yorta Yorta and Dja Dja Wurrung
Alma Thorpe, Gunditjmara

Each woman is celebrated through a video interview and personal artefacts that reflect aspects of their life and work.
Light refreshments will follow the formal proceedings, and we welcome all who wish to stay and join us for a yarning circle led by Auntie Sharon Atkinson.
Her Place Women’s Museum Australia celebrates the social, civic and entrepreneurial achievements of all Australian women and their role in shaping our nation. Her Place aspires to create Australia’s first dedicated national women’s museum and archive where the distinctive achievements and contributions of women can be acknowledged and written into history.
