Her Place Women’s Museum with Penelope Lee and Clare Williamson
In 2018, CAST received funding from RMIT’s Enabling Capability Platform to assist Her Place with a series of workshops designed to assist the conceptual development of cross-generational programs and models.
Questions about gender, intersectionality and how to build inter-generational dialogue through programs were explored in the larger context of the museum’s search for permanent premises.
In November 2018, Her Place were granted $1 million through a partnership with the National Trust and the State Government of Victoria and will be housed in Clarendon Terrace, East Melbourne
The F word: Her Place workshop 1
28 March 2018
Thirty people between the ages of 18 and 70 gathered to discuss the F word, ‘ feminism’. The workshop was designed to discuss the concept of a women’s museum, and encouraged a broader discussion about contemporary feminism, the impacts of social media and what kind of roadblocks contemporary feminism is encountering.
Why Her? Her Place workshop 2
25 October, 2018
This session focused on feedback from younger participants and was designed to interrogate some of the ongoing questions about a women’s museum at a time when gender identity is recognised as fluid. The museum’s name, its curatorial strategies and programs were discussed with ideas for greater representation of stakeholders and programs generating cross-generational dialogue put forward.
