Suspended blue aprons enclose and entangle the viewer as a metaphor for the selfless investment of heart and soul by women across time. This creates a space to reflect on the lives and struggles of women at Eureka and beyond. The historical ties that bind women are highlighted in this installation. People are encouraged to add tags to the apron strings to honour the memory of historical women, but also to celebrate the lives of women of personal importance to them.

Maryborough-based artist, Dr Flossie Peitsch’s practise embraces textiles, sculpture, installation, multimedia, and performance. Her interactive works seek to engage community members in dialogue about the lived experience of women, provoking reflections on self, family, community, and spirituality. She was awarded a PhD in visual arts from Victoria University, Melbourne in 2006
