The F Word is a multifaceted feminist art project spanning three years (2012-2014). Comprised of a series of workshops, seminars, exhibitions and public events, this project explores contemporary feminist art in Victoria.
Featured in 2012 was a two week residency at West Space, Melbourne. Film programs, knitting workshop, feminist forums and events were hosted by Victoria Duckett and Caroline Phillips, to bring together a range of artists, writers, historians, academics and feminists to explore past feminist archives, contemporary and younger voices, and future strategies.
