Digital Photograph - Denise Kirk & Banner, Women on Farms Gathering, North East (Beechworth), 2001 Image Reg. No: MM 90605

Colour digital photograph taken at the 2001 North East (Beechworth) Gathering. This photograph depicts Women on Farms Gathering participant Denise Kirk standing next to the Women on Farms Gathering perpetual banner. This banner was developed by Denise in 1993 in response to a suggestion by one of the original Gathering organisers, Shirley Martin, that a uniform and identifiable heading or logo be developed for use by all Gatherings. Denise was a committee member for the 1993 Tallangatta Gathering, and part of her role was to design and create the perpetual banner. Since the Tallangatta Gathering in 1993, each host committee has created a textile patch to represent their Gathering. The patches are sewn onto the perpetual banner which is displayed for the duration of the annual event. The image and theme of these patchwork squares gives form to women's stories and articulates the key issues, messages and understandings of rural women from their particular locality. By 2004 the original banner was completely covered with the patches from the fifteen Gatherings held to that point. An extension to the banner was created for the 2005 Gathering, providing space for future patches to be attached.
