Create an inter-generational place of beauty & lifelong learning, offering wondrous experiences to help people & planet flourish.
creating the village our hearts long for
for these times
a special place to gather
with our land, for a flourishing future
Founded 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, an arts & cultural centre delivering wondrous experiences to help people & planet flourish.
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 key-note 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.
