Women's Art Register

- Covid-Safe Re-opening news - 

We look forward to welcoming visitors to our archive from July 1, via appointment only.

Our Covid-Safe re-opening plan adheres to Government and Industry standards to protect your health, and the wellbeing of our valued volunteers.

Updates on our rescheduled public programs will be conveyed via our member e-news and social media community shortly.

While we wait to welcome you in person, we say Hello World. Please follow this LINK to a global project where artists throughout the world have submitted  works to share. On June 20, 2020 – the summer/winter solstice, the longest/shortest day of the year – the nonprofit organization TransCultural Exchange invites people everywhere to join Hello World’s (virtual) trek around the globe. Hundreds of artists and arts and cultural venues from over 70 countries make up this tour, including the Women's Art Register. We hope you enjoy this gesture of goodwill and solidarity from our colleagues around the globe.

The Women’s Art Register is Australia’s living archive of women’s art practice (cis,non-binary and trans inclusive) and a National, Artist-Run and Not-for-Profit community and resource.

Assessed as a ‘Collection of National Significance’ through the Heritage Collections Council in 2009, this unique archive houses the images, catalogues, posters and ephemera of over 5000 Australian and International artists.

Since 1975 the Women’s Art Register has provided an inclusive, independent platform for research, education, advocacy and support for its members and the Arts, Education and GLAM sectors, enhancing the status of women artists and addressing issues of equity, professional practice and cultural heritage.
