Future Feminist Archive (FFA) is an ongoing archive, addressing strategies of recovering lost information, promoting the legacies of local feminist art activists and building a solid platform for the future.

Contemporary Art and Feminism is an independent platform for art, scholarship and activism. Contemporary Art and Feminism has links to the Contemporary Art and Feminism Research Cluster at Sydney College of the Arts, SLAM (Department of Art History), and the Power Institute at Sydney University. It responds to the groundswell of interest in Feminism’s role in the development of contemporary art, specifically art-making and analysis.
