pram pilgrimage for brad

rebel tania headed to western australia’s parliament to carry out a tiny version of the action.  

the submission:

“As the father of a daughter who will become an adult in a world really different to the one we know now, I worry about how the emerging social and environmental collapse may beat out of her the natural and strong sense she has as a child of her own independence, voice and ability to make change, simply because of her gender.

brad, 10.10.19.

the thinking:

what is the idea we are moving forward with?

a corral of care taking.
a pilgrimage of men and women each carry a pram / wheelchair / hospital bed to parliament house
with the intent to temporarily occupy the car park.
action is to highlight unpaid care and labour that is not recognised in workforce or reflected in gdp

how can we do it?

pilgrimage journeys begin from a child care centre to parliament house.
the pram / chair / bed is empty but attached to shoulders / backs in interesting ways so that the journey is difficult but not impossible.

where does it need to take place?

objects gather together in parliament house car park and a moving circular coral is formed temporarily.

are there any legal implications to the activity?

public obstruction.
potential for damage to property.
if we are moving does it classify as obstruction?

tactic: occupation
