Remembering Stella Young

The Remembering Stella Young Project

“I am not a snowflake. I am not a sweet, infantilising symbol of fragility and life. I am a strong, fierce, flawed adult woman. I plan to remain that way, in life and in death.” Stella Young

The Remembering Stella Young project will deliver a statue of Stella Young in her hometown of Stawell to celebrate, commemorate and remember her.

Council received funding from the Victorian Government for the Remembering Stella Young project in February 2022, through the Victorian Women’s Public Art Program.

The planned artwork will commemorate Stella as a contemporary woman who made a significant contribution to Victoria and aims to continue her legacy, to challenge and educate society and its perception of disability, and to strive for “a world where disability is not the exception, but the norm”.
