Chromatic Outlook (Post#32) – Queen Victoria Women’s Centre – Exhibition Space

One of the thing that I discovered in this building is it offers space at a low-cost for women and women’s organization to exhibit and sell their work which is really an admirable objective. The snapshot is part of Queen Victoria Women’s Centre Photo Collection last July 2013.

The building itself survive over a century and has been part of colourful history of Melbourne Hospital now The Royal Melbourne Hospital and Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital. Supposed to be for demolition but because of women’s organization, this historical building still survive. The snapshot is part of Queen Victoria Women’s Centre Photo Collection last July 2013.

From the rooftop of Queen Victoria Women’s Centre, the famous State Library of Victoria is visible. Such grand roof of the building means one thing, how important the building is at the time its being built. I had a chance to visit the building and had a glimpse some part of it, please check my post here for the said building. The snapshot is part of Queen Victoria Women’s Centre Photo Collection last July 2013.

When I stayed for a while in Melbourne City, one of the event that I experienced was Melbourne Open House which happened once a year. During the event, many government, private, historical, church, commercial and even office buildings and structures are open for public viewing. I loved Open House because the event gave me a chance to enter to different buildings openly and for free. One of the building that I visited was Queen Victoria Women’s Centre which was a former Queen Victoria Hospital. The centre is a non-profit organization that provides information, support and resources for Victorian women and women’s organization. I captured this photo last July 2013 during Melbourne Open House.
