About the exhibition

'Blaze: Working Women, Public Leaders' explores the stories and achievements of women who have served lead roles in the NSW public sphere from the 1860s to the present. Blaze gives voice to remarkable trailblazers from the past and offers insights and perspectives from women today about their unique and diverse journeys of leadership.

NSW State Archives is the NSW Government's archives and records management authority. It manages the State Archives Collection of 13 million items valued at almost $1B, a unique and irreplaceable part of Australia's cultural heritage pre-dating 1788.

This exhibition is designed to be flexible, allowing venues to select all or part of the exhibition. The focus can be historic trailblazers and/or current leaders.
