Were you or someone you know at the infamous street party to launch the Women’s Mural in Hodgkinson Street and Smith Street, Clifton Hill, on Saturday 5th April, 1986?
Did you photograph the mural while the artists were painting it?
Have you taken a photo in front of the mural at some stage over its 30 year history?
Do you gaze at the mural from the No.86 tram on your daily commute?
Are you a friend of one of the women depicted?
Did you work at the Gas and Fuel depot behind the mural?
Or do you just want to tell us what the mural means to you?
Whatever your involvement with the mural and no matter how small your contribution is we want to hear it!
Danielle Hakim and Sally Northfield have been consulting with the community and key stakeholders to gather stories and other ephemera and offerings, such as photos and anecdotes. We will research the story of the mural in depth, photograph the ongoing interventions by the public, explore the mural’s context within the history of street murals and street art and also determine the options for documentation, whether website, publication or film. We'd love the community to help us complete the picture by sharing ideas, recollections, photos or even a short email to us would be welcome.
We are also able to collect, scan and return photos to you if you live in the inner north. If further afield please contact us to see what we can organise.
For any queries or contributions, please contact Danielle Hakim and Sally Northfield at:
We can’t wait to hear from you – and please tell you friends and neighbours about the project!
