Doing Feminism / Sharing the World is a practice-based residency project including collaborative groups from across Australia. It explores participatory art practice and collective collaborations across three-months of residencies, performances, artists' talks, seminars, screenings and a cross-generational mentoring program with a focus on collaboration, participatory and public projects informed by a feminist ethics that address the theme ‘sharing the world’. The program seeks to address a range of questions: What does it mean to ‘do feminism’, rather than ‘be a feminist’? How do differences intervene in our relations with each other? What does it mean to ‘share the world’?

The project aims are to investigate the impact of feminism on contemporary Australian art and to critically interpret the history of feminism and its influence on the ways in which Australian society views representations of women across cultural differences. Hundreds of women will have the opportunity to contribute to the project, revealing the roles and interactions between gender, race, class and ethnicity. This process is designed to give voice to complex positions, highlighting different interpretations rather than a unified point of view. The project plans to combine the source material collected through the national workshop program with scholarly methodologies to provide a diverse and noisy cultural picture of Australia and its women.
