As part of Phunktional’s Shadow Warrior tour in July 2017 two photographic exhibitions celebrating women in Mildura and Robinvale were created by local women. Both of these extraordinary exhibitions were titled: Everyday Heroes.
The 27 nominated ‘Everyday Heroes’ in Robinvale were beautifully captured by local photographer Rebel Burkinshaw. Interviews were conducted and edited by Mildura local, Tess Spaven, and the project was supported by local area coordinator, Jade Ficarra. Louisa Cox assisted as editor on the project.
Every one of the Heroes was chosen though Phunktional’s local networks and the wider community. Meet each of them below.
