The Museum of the Goldfields and the Goldfields Women's Health Care Centre invite you to the opening event of the Red Shoes Project
Installation beneath the Museum's iconic head frame as part of the launch of 16 Days In WA Campaign - for the elimination of violence
Saturday 25th Nov. 10am
Museum of the Goldfields
Under the Headframe
This powerful installation has been created with shoes donated by the community and painted red through a series of workshops across the
Goldfields. Each pair of painted shoes, placed one body length apart, will represent the life of a woman murdered in Australia by a
current or former partner.
The Museum and the GWHCC have been working with Dr Paola Magni-Partridge, the Australian Ambassador for the Red Shoes Project https://www.redshoesaustralia.com.au/
to bring the project to the Goldfields, the first held regionally of its kind and will be one of the guest speakers.
The Red Shoes project was started by architect and visual artist Elina Chauvet, born in Casa Grandes Chihuahua - one of the most dangerous
cities in Mexico. She first put together Los Zaptos Rojos Instalacion de Arte Publico in Ciudad Juarez in 2009 with 33 pairs of shoes
donated by the community when her 32-year-old sister was murdered by her husband.
The next Thrivers & Survivors Cancer Support Group will be held at the centre on FRIDAY 5th MAY 10am-12pm.. For more information

The GWHCC are excited to announce we will be holding a free Women's Health Week event on 11th September at the Lord Forrest Precinct.
Bring the family along for a morning of health & wellness activities, social networking, kids activities and to speak to service
providers, community groups & small businesses about what they can do for you!
This Goldfields Women’s Health Care Centre’s 12-month project, with funding from DLGSC and Lotterywest, aims to recognise and celebrate the
contributions of women to the Goldfields’ local history in the last 130 years.
Meet the Project is a business after-hours event to hear from the artists and organisers, how it will roll out, and how the community can be
involved. This sundowner event will launch the project, its platforms, and the submission process for including women’s stories from our
history into the project.
Facilitated by the Goldfields Women's Health Care Centre and Mara Pirni, this group supports women who have experienced, or are
experiencing, Family and Domestic Violence. All information disclosed is confidential and you get to share your experiences in a safe and
