Trailblazers: Women of the Yarra Ranges

Event
In the Yarra Ranges today, we reap the benefits of the women before us – from artists and activists to sports stars, these inspiring women have made a difference to the community. Celebrating some of these local champions and agents of change in an exhibition called Trailblazers: Women of the Yarra Ranges.

Telling the stories of women and their lasting impacts on the region and beyond. From Edna Walling and Dame Nellie Melba to Mandy Nicholson and Rebecca Barnard, learn how these women have shaped our culture and community in the past, present and future.

The exhibition has been locally produced and will feature the work of local writer and researcher Lindy Schneider, designer Lisa Cain and artist Cat MacInnes.

The April school holiday program will feature workshops with local makers and performers – some of whom are represented in the exhibition.

Nominate your own trailblazer online through My Local Trailblazer. Submit stories with pictures, poems, and videos of a member of the Yarra Ranges community that is a trailblazer to you. An online poll will see the winning entry receive a portrait of that person made by artist Cat MacInnes.
