Balit Bagurrk: Strong Aboriginal Women of the Yarra Ranges is a project to gather stories, photos, writing, poetry or artwork about the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women who have been important to this region.
Submit a creative work about yourself, a woman in your family, an Ancestor or any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander woman from the Yarra Ranges who has influenced you or your community.
They can be famous or just famous to you. Men are also encouraged to creatively honour the women in their lives.
The creative work will become a colour publication to celebrate those women the community have chosen to honour, to be launched in April 2020.
This project is a partnership between Yarra Ranges Council and Healesville Indigenous Community Services Association, funded by VicHealth’s Gender Equality for the Arts Program. It is governed and guided by a majority Indigenous, female project committee.
