This exhibition shows how ‘crafting’ – traditionally considered women’s work – can be used for political expression and social change.

Changemakers consists of eight textile banners that represent a range of historical and contemporary activist movements including the women’s suffrage campaign, as well as banners displayed in town halls and churches. 

Many of the social issues raised by early activists remain vitally relevant today, including equal pay, sexual harassment, family violence, and female representation in Parliament and business.
