Brisbane lights up for the CWA

Lighting up for the CWA.

Women of the CWA have lit up the lives of generations of Queenslanders and now Brisbane City has been lighting up significant public spaces in the iconic blue and white to say thank you.

For 100 years the women of the QCWA have supported and connected women throughout every phase of life, in good times and bad according to CWA Centenary team spokeswoman Christine King.

They have provided opportunities for women around education, health and community. Having earned trust and respect over decades of action, QCWA continues to advocate for change and improvement in all areas that affect the health, safety and well-being of Queensland families in the city, regions and in the bush.

To shine the light on a century of achievements, the Story, Victoria and Breakfast Creek Bridges turned blue and white. The 15 giant marbles in Reddacliff Place have been glowing cobalt blue as will the Tropical Dome in the Brisbane Botanic Gardens. The ornate wall of the Wickham Terrace Car park will also be illuminated in the QCWA colours.

From Monday the 8 to Sunday 21 August, banner were flying at Rokeby Terrace Taringa, Mains Road (outbound) Sunnybank and Turbot Street, Brisbane City to remind everyone that the CWA has been active in Queensland since 1922 during wars, floods, droughts, fires and pandemics.

“As you drive by, take a moment to ponder the network of women it has created – that reaches into cities and towns across our vast state – and what the CWA has done for our state for a century and the potential it has to do more in the next 100 years and beyond,” Christine said.
