The Change Room

Bond Store Basement

The Change Room celebrates the strength, tenacity and resilience of all Tasmanian women who have contributed to sport and recreation in communities across the island, nationally and internationally.

The exhibition recognizes the contribution of female athletes and coaches, spectators and sporting commentators to the sports they love.

It also acknowledges those behind the scenes who make the games happen: administrators, managers, board members and health professionals.

The Change Room highlights the trailblazers, the women who stepped forward into what often seemed a man’s world, to bowl a cricket ball or kick a footy.

Through words, images and objects, the exhibition presents a sample of the many stories of Tasmanian women who have reached the elite level in sport and asks the question, where to next?

This project is supported by Events Tasmania as part of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Women’s T20 World Cup program being hosted by Australia in February and March 2020.
