Stellar Violets’ vision
Create an inter-generational, collaborative place of beauty & lifelong learning, offering wondrous experiences to help people & planet flourish.
To empower women and girls to take their authentic, deep-rooted place in the whole of their local ecology – to inhabit one’s soul ecology.
Through immersive experiences like workshops, overnight stays, and published offerings, Stellar Violets nurtures & grows creativity, self-confidence, and connection, in reciprocal relationship with nature.
What would be possible if each one of us came to know, and care for the place we inhabit deeply, and intimately? That being – one’s inner, and outer landscape? Friends of Stellar Violets are guided to have a taste of what that might feel like.
And so, through our work, we whisper,
and give attention to the question,
“How, in this time, shall we live?”
Stories and multi-media productions calling forth the world our hearts know is possible.

Will you join us on the journey? What will you encounter, if you do?
A Nature Playgroup was established in 2017, and may return in 2021, post Covid – fingers crossed. A pilot girls experience was held in January 2020. Funding is to be sought to enable Stellar Violets to offer a regular-seasonal program tailored for girls & women.
Founded in 2012 by Lucinda Giblett in Manjimup, Western Australia, Stellar Violets exists to enrich life. Functioning as a collaborative place of beauty and learning, volunteer-led projects map responses to pervasive ill health in self, land and society – the global “whole health” crisis.
Stellar Violets is a Western Australian Incorporated Association and Australian Registered Charity (DGR). Our Committee of Management is made up of local, inter-state, and international volunteer members, artist collaborators, and professionals giving pro-bono assistance.
Founder / Creative Director
Lucinda Giblett is the founder and creative director of Stellar Violets Life Library Living Museum & Gallery.
After completing graduate, and post graduate studies in Communications, and Creative Industries at Curtin, and then QUT and living abroad, in France, Lucinda returned to her family farm in Manjimup, out of which her Stellar Violets dream has emerged.
Lucinda has been recognised for her work by being awarded runner up West Australian Rural Woman of the Year, and is a highly regarded keynote speaker.
Lucinda and Stellar Violets volunteers are dreaming into a world fit for our time, in which the global ‘whole health’ crisis is met with sanity and soul, for the well-being of self, land, and society. Forthcoming creative offerings from Lucinda include piping, poetry, and a book about Stellar Violets’ first ten years.
