Exhibition Launch: UNEARTH Women in Mining

  • CORE Innovation Hub Foyer, 191 Saint Georges Terrace Perth, WA, 6000 Australia (map)

The UNEARTH exhibition is a selection of photographs from the 2017 International Women in Mining Photographic Competition. The exhibition emphasises the diversity of the mining industry by recognising women from across the globe and the various roles they fill. From mining tin in dormant volcanoes to updating IT systems, and in occupations spanning electricians, engineers, draftswomen, and zoologists, each image tells a unique story of culture, experience, and impact. Despite all these differences, the photographs fit together to unearth common themes in the strength, passion, and determination of women in the industry.

UNEARTH was produced by UWA students Charlotte Glance (Bs), Bonnie Lacey, Lucy Sharp (Masters of Science Communication) and Adam Diaz (Bs Geology) under the guidance of Muza Gondwe (IWiM).

CORE Innovation Hub is proud to highlight and celebrate the contributions made by women to the resources sector. We feel strongly that diversity is an important driver of innovation. 

Join us for morning tea to celebrate Women in Mining and the launch of the exhibition. UNEARTH will be on display in the Parmelia House Foyer from 9 April to 15 April.
