VicHealth aimed to use the power of art to raise awareness and promote gender equality and to celebrate women. It also wanted to build capacity by bringing artists and local councils together. The project has demonstrated the effectiveness of a partnership model  for promoting gender equality through the arts which allows for a localised implementation.

This work is timely, given the recently enacted Gender Equality Act 2020 (Vic), in which local government has been recognised as a key setting with a duty to promote gender equality due to the significant and direct influence of Council policies, programs, and services on the community.
