Invisible Farmer Project – Emma Moss

The Invisible Farmer Project is a Museums Victoria initiative:

The Invisible Farmer Project was the largest ever study of Australian women on the land, uncovering the histories and stories of Australian women in agriculture. It began as a pilot project (2015-2016) and evolved into a three year (2017-2020) nation-wide partnership between rural communities, academic, government and cultural organisations, funded by the Australian Research Council. It sought to address the historical and contemporary invisibility of Australian farm women and to celebrate the creative and vital role that women play in sustaining Australian farms and rural communities. It combined personal narratives and academic research to map the diverse, innovate and vital role of women in Australian agriculture. Key outcomes of the project were:

  • Creation of new histories of rural Australia, including a series of interviews collected for Museums Victoria’s Invisible Farmer Project collection;
  • Enhanced understandings about the diverse, innovative and vital role of women in agriculture and rural communities;
  • Educate communities about the diverse, innovative and vital role of women in agriculture and rural communities;
  • Stimulation of public discussions about contemporary issues facing rural Australia and its future;
  • Development of significant public collections that will shape research, industry and public policy into the future;
  • A widespread media and social media campaign that saw hundreds of thousands of community members engaging with the stories of Australian farm women via the Project’s website (www.invisiblefarmer.net.au), Instagram, Facebook and Twitter (@invisfarmer). . .

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. . .
