SISTA4SISTA is an exhibition of some 50 framed photographs and projected images of women who took part in the six month Sista4Sista Nambour Community Centre project. Hosted at some 12 events across the Sunshine Coast Sista4Sista was designed to power and connect women.
Ladies from some 60 countries of all ages, backgrounds and experiences were photographed. The images include mothers and daughters, women at their workplaces and women who have started community groups.
The strong woman pose adopted by each of the women is based on the 1943 poster We Can Do It produced by J.Howard Miller as an inspirational image to boost female worker morale.
The poster is also know as Rosie the Riveter.
The main aim of the exhibition is to show the Sunshine Coast community both diversity and celebration. Sharing stories and pictures can ‘humanize’ people from refugee and multicultural backgrounds and contribute to more understanding and acceptance of difference.
The Sista4Sista exhibition is accompanied by another from Amnesty International which showcases stories of refugees and those who have helped them.
