I want to share with you an inspiring new short-film series that has been filmed across the agricultural community in WA and that is available freely to everyone to watch from August 28th 2019.
VISIBLE FARMER discovers the untold stories of 15 gutsy women behind WA’s food and fibre, and the vital, innovative role they play. From remote outback stations to urban market gardens, VISIBLE FARMER will change our perception of who a farmer is.
“The days of the solo man running the station on his own and gazing off into the sunset, they're over.” - Debbie Dowden, a pastoralist from Challa Station is one of the women featuring in the first season of 15 short films.
On 28 August 2019, VISIBLE FARMER’s first episode will be launched at WA’s largest annual agricultural event - the Dowerin GWN7 Machinery Field Days, as part of their theme “Celebrating Our Story”. Simultaneously the episodes will be released for free sharing across multiple digital platforms on FB, YouTube and the VISIBLE FARMER WEBSITE.
After the launch, a new episode will be posted every two weeks – so follow @visiblefarmer and tune in!
The series is not-for-profit and has social impact campaign built around it. At its heart VISIBLE FARMER is about gender equality and strong, positive stories from Australia's farming communities.
“We want people to join the movement, share the films, spread the word, encourage other women and support women farmers” Gisela Kaufmann, Director
I’d appreciate it if you could encourage your community to WATCH THE SERIES and to share support on your communities’ social pages.
