Children’s Day

After setting up the picture railing, it didn’t even cross my mind to take photos of the works being hung! Ha. I’ll get something right eventually.

Maybe I was distracted by the super cute flying foxes.

Children’s Day was about changing the energy of The Parramatta Female Factory Precinct into a site of Consciousness. It was known for taking girls from their mothers and treating them like cattle. Girls that were criminals and/or victimsed were housed together and abused very harshly.  Many girls died here and some of them didn’t have marked graves. Everybody chipped in to make flowers from plastic bottles to commemorate these girls.
