The Invisible Farmer Project is a wonderful initiative by Museums Victoria:
The Invisible Farmer project seeks to address the historical and contemporary invisibility of Australian farming women and to celebrate the creative and vital role that women play in sustaining Australian farms and rural communities. It will combine personal narratives and academic research to map the diverse, innovate and vital role of women in Australian agriculture. The project involves a creative partnership between rural communities, academics, government and cultural organisations. Together we will:
- Create new histories of rural Australia
- Reveal the unknown stories of women on the land
- Educate communities about the diverse, innovative and vital role of women in agriculture and rural communities
- Stimulate public discussions about contemporary issues facing rural Australia and its future
- Develop significant public collections that will enable far reaching outcomes in research, industry and public policy. . .
