Image of a video being recorded during the 2003 Yarram Women on Farms Gathering. Capturing a historical record of this Gathering was of particular importance due to the fact that this Gathering included the official signing of The Women on Farms Gathering Heritage Agreement. Signalling the formal beginning of the Victorian Women on Farms Gathering Collection, the Heritage Agreement laid down a commitment to "protect, preserve, document, exhibit and enhance access and understanding of the stories relating to Victorian Women on Farms Gatherings." The signing of the agreement occurred at the end of the Gathering, on the Sunday morning, when a special scroll was signed by representatives of all past Gatherings.
This item is part of Museums Victoria's Invisible Farmer Project Collection. The Invisible Farmer Project was the largest ever study of Australian women on the land, uncovering the histories and stories of Australian women in agriculture. It began as a pilot project (2015-2016) and evolved into a three year (2017-2020) nation-wide partnership between rural communities, academic, government and cultural organisations, funded by the Australian Research Council.
