WA Women's Hall of Fame talk and exhibition featuring Amanda Healy
South Perth resident and 2022 WA Women’s Hall of Fame inductee Amanda Healy will share her journey from male dominated mining to the world of high-end Aboriginal fashion design as part of the City's NAIDOC Week celebrations.
On Wednesday 6 July, South Perth Library will host Amanda's presentation, along with a WA Women's Hall of Fame exhibition from 4-22 July.
About Amanda Healy
Amanda is from the Wonnarua Nation, NSW, and as with many First Nations peoples’, she has broad connections across the country. Amanda has more than 35 years’ experience in the mining industry - in Australia and internationally - has founded two Indigenous engineering companies and developed Kirrikin to support Aboriginal artists.
Amanda has recently returned from Afterpay Australian Fashion Week where she launched the new Kirrikin collection named Ripples. Amanda began Kirrikin in 2014 because she was frustrated at the lack of authentic Aboriginal fashion products. She fell in love with the art work and was inspired to make them into beautiful fashion products.
Her talk is part of the City's Words with Wine series, so you can enjoy a glass of wine at this 18+ event from 6.30-8pm. Doors open at 6.15pm and bookings are essential via Eventbrite.
