 ?What is the Idea 

In tribal days, women used to go to the river collect water  and wash clothes, and,
.regularly connected with other women 
In today's world, for a myriad of reasons including a huge shift
in the nature of gender roles, family structure and living, time and work responsibilities means some women are becoming more isolated
We would like to replace the river with the She Shed 
a relaxed, comfortable, creative space where women can

meet and share their talents with others
This sense of shared creativity and togetherness helps build
stronger individuals that build even stronger communities

Where's the project up to? 

We have an opportunity to rent a space under queenslander centrally located on Martyn Street, Cairns. The space is 155m2 and is a shell, we are in the process of setting up an incorporated Association / charity to help raise funds to fit out the space with a ceiling, sound proofing, adequate lighting, disabled acessess and bathroom. With the support of the community and hopefully access to grants we are hoping to be open December 2024. 

Ultimately, the goal is that the She Shed will cover it's own costs with...  
1. Money from classes held in the She Shed. 

2. Open studio sessions
3. Cairns Created - A high-quality, locally handmade gift shop for everyone
4. Renting the space

Why is connecting so important?

“What do we do when our hearts hurt?” asked the boy. 

“We wrap them with friendship, shared tears and time, till they wake hopeful and happy again."

From the book The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy.

"Human connection is an essential aspect of our lives that is often overlooked or taken for granted. As social beings, we have an innate need to connect and communicate with others. Whether it's a simple conversation with a friend, a hug from a loved one, or a deep connection with a partner, human connection plays a vital role in our emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing.


One of the primary benefits of human connection is that it helps to reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation. In today's digital age, it's easy to stay connected with others online, but this type of connection is not the same as face-to-face interaction. Research has shown that people who have strong social connections are less likely to suffer from depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues.

Human connection also plays a crucial role in our physical health. Studies have shown that people who are socially isolated are more likely to suffer from chronic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, and even cancer. This is because human connection helps to reduce stress levels, which can have a significant impact on our overall health.

Another important aspect of human connection is that it helps to build empathy and understanding. When we connect with others, we are better able to understand their perspectives and experiences. This, in turn, helps to foster a sense of community, tolerance and belonging, which is essential for our overall wellbeing."


From the book Regrets of the Dying by Bronnie Ware, who is a palliative care nurse with 30 years experience. Her book explores what she has learned from her dying patients.

These are The Top Five Regrets of the Dying, and you have the opportunity right now to embody the wisdom that many realised far too late.

  1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. Health brings a freedom very few realise, until they no longer have it.

  2. I wish I hadn't worked so hard.

  3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings.

  4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

  5. I wish I had let myself be happier.



Human connection is an essential aspect of our

lives that should not be overlooked.

Make an effort to connect with others on a regular basis

and your well-being will thank you for it.


"Be the woman who fixes another woman's crown, 

without telling the world

it was crooked".
