NAIDOC Week is celebrating the invaluable contributions that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have made – and continue to make - to our communities, our families, and our rich history.
Q Shelter is celebrating NAIDOC Week 2018 by hosting a digital photographic exhibition showcasing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women who have contributed to the housing and homelessness sector and their local communities.
They interviewed 19 women from across the state to find out more about their contributions, the women inspired them growing up, and their messages to other women this NAIDOC Week.
The interviews included women from the Torres Strait, Mornington Island, Central Queensland, North Peninsula Area, as well as South East Queensland.
Q Shelter wanted to highlight women who may not have been recognised in the past.
