A portrait photography and storytelling project to honour the Aboriginal women who led the way. We celebrate their leadership, their sacrifice, their achievements, the impact they made on our lives.

For many of us, we are what we are today because of the strong women in our lives.

The portraits will be collated into a digital exhibition that will be screened on the Yagan Square Digital Tower during NAIDOC week. Once completed, the portrait collection will be available here as an online exhibition.  The project aims to be the impetus for further posting of personal portraits and stories from the public.

We invite you to join us at 12pm, Monday July 9th to view the portraits premiere screeing on the digital tower @Yagan Square. Our project is all about honouring inspirational Noongar women who have had a positive impact on their family and friends’ lives as part of this year’s #NAIDOC2018  theme #BecauseOfHerWeCan.

To be a part of this community project. Simply upload and share a photo and story of an inspirational ATSI woman who has influenced your life for the better.  Use the hashtag #CanBecauseOfHer and tag us @CANWA in your post to join in the movement of celebrating these strong women.
