Nyit is Noongar for little and we invite you to come and see the Ecoburbia and hear from Britta about it's development
About this Event
Britta is a year 12 student at the Waldorf Steiner School. For her final year major project Britta decided she wanted to look at women in non traditional trades and the barriers they faced in their work.
And what better way to do that than to work together on a project?
Nyit was built by female tradies (whenever possible ) in particular the two carpenters Charlotte and Aly, electrician Saf and project manager Emily. (any males on site had to wear a skirt!)
During this talk Britta will outline some research about women in the building trades, share some of the things she learnt "on the job", both in talking to the "ladie tradies" and on the tools, and make some comments about ways forward for women in these industries.
And then - everyone can have a look at the final result - Nyit!
