Stories of First Generation Australian Women
This book tells the stories of the 50 women who helped me embroider a 340cm circular white dress. Each double page shows the embroidery they created and how this translates their journey to Australia.
In this book, each woman tells what brought her to Australia, the challenges she faced and also her joys. These stories highlight the importance of creativity as a mean to socialise, form friendship and express oneself.
