Disability advocate Stella Young immortalised in Stawell with statue

It feels entirely appropriate that children be watched over by the newly unveiled bronze statue of Stella Young as they tumble and squeal in Stawell’s accessible playground.

The much-admired disability advocate grew up in the small western Victorian town where she was today immortalised at an emotional ceremony.

The statue of Stella Young is the first of six artworks commissioned by the Victorian Government’s Women’s Public Art Program.
