For those of you who may have known or worked with, Kassa Bird (previously of Ballina Byron Family Support and Mullumbimby Women’s Service), this is to share the news of her passing on Thursday October 15 at 4.55pm.

Kassa was many wonderful things and was renowned for her work over several decades with women and children escaping domestic violence.

She was a staunch feminist, social activist, award-winning textile artist, sister, daughter and a dear, dear friend to many within the women’s community here and in Victoria.

She was my beloved friend and along with her family and other love ones, we are heart broken.

May I suggest that whether you knew Kassa or not, today and for some days following, be passionate about the important things, be joyous about the small things and be grateful for those workers who have spent a lifetime as advocates, activists and maintainers of the rage.

Should you want to send messages to family or friends please do so via [email protected]

  1. Dear Rose,
    Thank you for the information about the passing of Kassa Bird. Kassa has a beautiful textile piece that has been touring in Ozquilt Network’s Australia Wide Four exhibition tour. I am about to return the textile works now that the tour has finished. Do you think the family would appreciate the return of the work?
