Future Feminist Archive has been working hard to build connections between local archives and local feminist histories. The aim is to uncover forgotten archives and facilitate an increase in visibility for Australia’s women artists, past and present.

As part of FFA, well-known artist Fiona MacDonald is researching Vivienne Binns’ Full Flight (1981 – 83), addressing it as a feminist prototype for contemporary participatory practices. This project consisted of Binns living in an “Art Caravan” for two years and travelling from Lithgow to Lake Cargelligo in central New South Wales. Throughout this journey, she observed and engaged with the creative expression of local communities.
