Voluntary Individual Contribution
Dr Dorothy Erickson
Dorothy Erickson's passionate work as a curator, historian, author, critic, and lecturer has seen 40 years of commitment to documenting Western Australia's portable cultural heritage. She volunteers her professional expertise to research, document, advise, and collect for public institutions, organisations and private individuals to preserve and promote Western Australia's moveable heritage.
Dorothy’s work has included advising institutions, writing books and articles, giving lectures and organising exhibitions. Her most recent written work, Inspired by Light and Land: Designers and Makers in Western Australia: 1829-1969 was shortlisted for the Premier’s book Award in 2016.
Diane Pope has volunteered her time and expertise freely and enthusiastically to many historic associations and projects in Western Australia.
As the owner of the 1853 State heritage listed property Enderslea Farm in the Chittering Valley, Diane has worked tirelessly to restore the homestead, the convict-built stone barn and the New Norcia-style stone well on the property.
Open by appointment, Enderslea Farm houses important collections of WA colonial furniture, vintage quilts, and farming equipment that help promote the importance of Western Australian domestic history.
Diane is dedicated to sharing the stories of Enderslea Farm and Western Australia with the public through the original historic plays she researches, writes and produces.
