Women's Art Register

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.

It Comes In Waves

It Comes in Waves is an intergenerational conversation series featuring discussions between early career artists and writers and some of the longest-standing members of the Women’s Art Register. Developed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, this series engages women and non-binary artists and arts professionals to address themes including trauma, care community and identity. These conversations act as an opportunity for knowledge sharing, critical discussion and intergenerational support.

The Women's Art Register is an Incorporated Association, registered with Consumer Affairs Victoria.

Supported by the City of Yarra.
