Know My Name

Conference hosted by the National Gallery of Australia, featuring NAVA's Georgia Mokak and NAVA Board Member Genevieve Grieves, Tuesday 10 – Friday 13 November 2020.

Know My Name is an initiative of the National Gallery of Australia to celebrate the significant contributions of Australian women artists. The initiative aims to increase the representation of artists who identify as women and enhance understanding of the contributions they have made and continue to make to Australia's cultural life.

Know My Name is part of a global movement to increase representation of women identifying artists. It builds on the work of groups supporting gender equity cross the arts including Countess and the Sheila Foundation in Australia, and the #5WomenArtists campaign by the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC.

Genevieve Grieves, a Worimi woman and NAVA Board member will present the opening keynote at 1pm Tuesday 10 November offering First Nations perspectives on art, gender and feminism. On Friday afternoon, 13 November, Georgia Mokak, a Djugun woman and NAVA’s First Nations Research and Engagement Coordinator will join the wrap up panel session facilitated by Professor Denise Ferris, Head of School of Art & Design at ANU.
