Artefact Celebrates International Women's Day

International Women’s Day is an important time to reflect and to acknowledge the amazing women of Artefact, the heritage industry and beyond.


"Throughout my life I’ve witnessed the challenges we face as women – misogyny, unpaid childcare, balancing household and professional commitments, as well as struggles about body imagine, confidence and speaking out that come from expectations ingrained in us by society from childhood.

Respect especially to our First Nations women who live all of this on top of racial discrimination.

Acknowledgement is the core of change and I’m immensely proud to lead this team of talented female professionals in making Artefact an agent of change for women.”

Dr Sandra Wallace
(Founder & Managing Director)
