This Is W.A.R! – The Women’s Art Register online mapping project
The Women’s Art Register is Australia’s living archive of women’s art practice (cis, non-binary and trans inclusive) and an artist-run, not-for-profit community and resource. Assessed as a ‘Collection of National Significance’ through the Heritage Collections Council in 2009, this unique archive houses documentation of over 5000 artists. We are located in Melbourne, in the basement of the Richmond library. We are entirely volunteer-run and have survived due to the passion and goodwill of our membership base and a team of passionate and dedicated volunteers. Since 1975 the Women’s Art Register has provided an inclusive, independent platform for research, education, advocacy and support, enhancing the status of women artists and addressing issues of equity, professional practice and cultural heritage.
